Grocery bills are relentlessly higher these days, fueling the highest overall consumer inflation in decades. Which of the items on your regular list are rising the most?

Here’s a look at the biggest price increases (and decreases) just in the month of October, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pork chops, cereal, and peanut butter had some of the biggest gains, while frankfurters and citrus fruits actually got a tad less expensive.

Keep in mind, too, that monthly increases have been really adding up over the last year. Uncooked beef steaks, for example, got 2.8% pricier in October and are now about 24% more expensive than a year ago.
