Supermarket Sweep

In an Aug. 2 Gallup poll, Americans said they spend $150 on food on an average week compared to $106 a week in 1987, the last time Gallup asked this question. The polling organization has asked a version of this question since 1943 — back then Americans reported spending just $15 a week on food. (Photo: Orlando Sentinel/ MCT /LANDOV)
