Groceries are getting more and more expensive to buy and egg prices are of particular interest as we look over recent predictions.

The increase in egg prices comes from a few different factors. That includes inflation continuing to rise and pulling the prices of goods up with it. Supply chain issues have also been a problem and the war in Ukraine isn’t helping matters.

But those aren’t the only things keeping the price of eggs high. There’s also an increase in Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) across the U.S. that’s affecting those prices. While that will eventually pass, it could be some time before the price of eggs returns to normal.

Keeping that in mind, we’re diving into the latest egg price predictions. Let’s see what experts have to say about egg prices for the rest of 2022 below!

Egg Price Predictions

“The egg supply shock is real, and higher egg prices will undoubtedly continue for the remainder of 2022” — Kevin Bergquist, Wells Fargo sector manager of Food and Agribusiness Industry Advisors, told Food Institue.

It’s worth noting that egg prices might see a drop depending on how this HPAI goes. Prices could also head lower if consumers start eating away from home more. That could see prices decrease throughout the year.
