The reasons your weekly grocery shop has been so much more expensive has been revealed as the cost-of-living crisis continues to batter shoppers at the checkout.

The weekly staples that have risen in price the most in the last year have been named in data behind this week's announcement that inflation is at its highest level in two decades.

Vegetables, fruit, breakfast cereals, bread, eggs, oils, butter and margarines have all jumped sharply in price in the last year according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

The ABS released its quarterly Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures - the key measure of inflation - on Wednesday morning, showing a 6.1 per cent jump over the last year.

That was the steepest increase to inflation since mid-2001 and excluding the impacts of the GST, the highest since the December quarter of 1990.

The biggest jump in an everyday grocery item was the cost of veges, due to the continued flooding in southeast Queensland and New South Wales.

Vegetables were up 7.3 per cent in the past three months across Australia but the hikes were even higher in some capitals.

In Darwin the cost of veges was up 9 per cent, while both Sydney and Melbourne saw vege prices jump 7.7 per cent.

In the 12 months to June 2022, fruit and vegetables were up 7.3 per cent.

America Was in an Early-Death Crisis Long Before COVID

  America Was in an Early-Death Crisis Long Before COVID Even before the pandemic began, more people here were dying at younger ages than in comparably wealthy nations.Bor and his colleagues arrived at that number by using data from an international mortality database and the CDC. For every year from 1933 to 2021, they compared America’s mortality rates with the average of Canada, Japan, and 16 Western European nations (adjusting for age and population). They showed that from the 1980s onward, the U.S. started falling behind its peers. By 2019, the number of missing Americans had grown to 626,000. After COVID arrived, that statistic ballooned even further—to 992,000 in 2020, and to 1.1 million in 2021. Were the U.S.

Non-alcoholic drinks - think coffee, tea, juice and soft drinks went up even more - 7.9 per cent.
