Whether you've noticed or not, food prices are down and shoppers are finally seeing some relief at the grocery store.

According to the labor department food sold in grocery stores has been slowly dropping in price for the past seven months. Officials at City Market say they've been able to drop prices due to manufacturer price decreases. "Our manufacturers are giving us some savings and passing on savings so we're trying to pass those on as well to the consumer," says Tom Bell, City Market Director of Store Operations.

While prices are down in the consumer price index they still have a long way to go to match prices last year, before rising fuel costs and other factors sent the price of commodities skyrocketing.
