Grocery Prices Soar in Minnesota - Up 33.8% Since 2021 - 4th Highest in the Nation



Minnesota's grocery prices have soared 33.8% since 2021, making us fourth highest in the nation. This financial pain is due to the DFL's unchecked spending. They claim the economy is strong, but does it feel strong to you?


Take a look at just SOME of the increases in Minnesota:

Let's take a look from another angle:


These prices are simply unaffordable for Minnesota families.


According to a study by Qualtrics on behalf of Intuit Credit Karma, 80% of Americans say they have felt a "notable increase" in grocery costs in recent years. More than a quarter of respondents said the increased cost has led them to occasionally skip meals, while about one-third said they spend more than 60% of their monthly income on mandatory expenses such as food, utilities and rent.


Further, 26% of respondents said they purchased unhealthy foods for themselves or their families because of pricing.


About 21% of respondents said they felt ashamed because of their inability to afford groceries.


The DFL trifecta has failed us, creating economic misery for hardworking Minnesotans. It's time to replace the DFL trifecta with responsible leaders who work for us, so we can finally get the financial relief we deserve.

We all agree everything is more expensive. The data you provide supports that point. Have you any data supporting the idea that this is connected to dfl policy decisions?

The rising cost of food in MN has more to do with our short growing season and the cost of transportation than politics. I found by switching to whole foods - making soups and stews in winter, cooking pots of grains or beans, and eating seasonally helps a lot with the grocery bill and is far healthier.

Look in the mirror. The Republican Party has always sides with big business and has done nothing to hold them accountable at any level.


Insurance partially is increasing due to catostropic weather changes and increased large scale devistation. The GOP has denied climate change for 30+ years and still has done nothing to drive and support change.

I believe it does. As the climate becomes more extreme, insurance companies are unwilling to insure against increasingly hazardous conditions. If that's just a ruse, insurance companies are profiteering on the common misconception.

It is not just groceries. My home insurance tripled. My car insurance went up 20%. My HOA costs have doubled, new cars are unaffordable and gas prices have doubled. Meanwhile Governor Walz and The Democrat controlled legislature have limited my state pension to a 1% annual cost of living increase!

Buy your groceries in Ely. I bet that percentage is far greater in the BWCA. And I've known this for years. Tell me something I don't already live with daily.
