(Consumers Products You Pay More For report updated with price increases from General Mills and Campbell's Soup.)
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- If it seems like everything from meat and potatoes to tissues and light bulbs is getting more expensive, it's because it is. Here's a look at some of the consumer products you're paying more for....
General Mills' (GIS) Food Products
On July 13 General Mills said it will raise prices to offset higher costs and sales slower volume.
General Mills said it would pass higher costs for ingredients and fuel onto consumers.
CEO Ken Powell conceded that he didn't believe food prices would come down this year as they did last year, predicting inflationary trends to continue. The company did not say how much it would raise prices nor on exactly which products consumers could expect to pay more, but General Mills did say that on its Progresso brand of canned soups it would reduce discounts as a means of raising prices. In May, General Mills' prices were 9.4% higher than they were a year ago, according to the Wall Street Journal.
