As you know, egg prices have skyrocketed this year due to the Avian outbreak.

At one point this year, a dozen eggs would cost you between $4 and $5. 

Now a dozen eggs will cost $2 or more. Expect to continue to see those egg prices continue to increase by 1 percent in 2016, according to the USDA.

Chicken prices are also expected to increase this year. Expect to see an increase of 2.5 to 3.5 percent in 2016.

On a good note, those fruits and veggies may not cost as much this year. Due to gas prices decreasing and other factors, you may see a downward tick on the cost of produce overall.
