    Food prices are starting to drop for a number of reasons.

    High prices at the grocery store are finally easing.

    When the price of gasoline spiked last summer, so did grocery prices, but now, with expensive commodity contracts expiring, and consumer spending dropping, stores are looking for your business.

    "That would be nice. We could use a break right now for sure," said shopper Cindy Hanson.
