After Americans Say Enough Is Enough, Price Of Eggs To Drop From $5 To $1

  • Wholesale egg prices, which retailers pay to suppliers, are falling quickly.
  • They were at $1.22 a dozen on April 26, according to Urner Barry data. That’s down from a record $5.46 in December.
  • Prices jumped when a historic and deadly outbreak of bird flu in the U.S. ran headlong into peak demand around the winter holidays.
  • Supply and demand pressures have eased. But retailers have discretion to pass (or not pass) savings on to consumers.
