Bacon prices on the rise nationwide
The price of bacon is going up.
Since June 2013, the average price of bacon has risen 14 percent to $6.11 per pound. Since June 2012, the price has increased by a staggering 41 percent.
Analysts say the price increase is due to a shortage of pigs. They say millions have been wiped out by a virus.
Experts say increased demand is also a part of the problem.
