Alabamians are paying more for groceries this month.

The Alabama Farmers Federations said the cost of 20 basic market basket items climbed 2.4 percent in May to a statewide average of $52.18.

The increase from April was blamed in part on declining meat production.

The Federation said consumers paid more for beef, poultry and certain produce items. Dairy prices, including ice cream, remained unchanged. The lowest average price for a market basket was found in northwest Alabama at $50.06. In south Alabama it was $53.96.
