Alabamians are paying more for groceries this month.

The Alabama Farmers Federation said the cost of 20 basic market basket items in Feb. climbed just under 1 percent to a statewide average of $53.71.

The 29 cent hike from Jan. was blamed in part on higher prices for vegetables and certain beef products. But the higher prices were offset by lower prices for dairy and pork products.

A regional survey of the state showed the lowest average price for a market basket was found in northeast Alabama at $51.61. It was highest in south Alabama at $57.87.
