The US Department of Labor says food prices rose by .4 percent during March, contributing to an overall price increase of only .2 percent. A decrease in gasoline prices kept the level of the overall increase down. Elevated prices for eggs, milk, butter, oranges, pork chops, ground beef and poultry led all food price increases.
