Bacon prices have dropped

Posted: Updated:

Bacon lovers rejoice.

One pound of America's favorite smoked meat is 25 percent cheaper than a year ago, according to the United States Department of Agriculture's data. That's $1.25 of savings per pound.

You can thank sex for the savings. Pigs can give birth to several piglets at a time, quickly refilling America's pork supply.

Shoppers should now be able to find sausage and bacon at about the same price.
