dc.description.abstractPrices and costs of living in Alaska have been reviewed in earlier works by this author and others (1) ; until now, however, there has not been detailed analyses of trends in food prices, despite the need for this information . Food comprises a large portion of the consumer budget; this is particularly significant in the lower income brackets. Alaska presently imports the majority of its foodstuffs, making Alaska food prices dependent on m any circumstances, some beyond state influence. Concurrently, Alaska's potential for large scale agricultural production is being discussed and recognized (2). This paper has three primary objectives: (1) to discuss the level of retail food prices in Anchorage relative to the U.S. (2) to describe trends in retail food prices, both in Anchorage and the U.S. ( 3) to present retail food price comparisons among selected communities within Alaska.en_US
