New Yorkers are bringing home the bacon — but can’t afford the beef.
The prices of supermarket staples such as meat, milk and butter are skyrocketing.
US Labor Department data show the bill for butter surged 23.7 percent over the last 12 months. Meat rose 13 percent in the last year, with beef jumping 17.8 percent — the biggest boost since January 2004.
Meanwhile, fresh fruits other than apples, bananas and oranges increased 9.5 percent and whole milk rose 8.7 percent.
