The price of butter has increased

(KYMA, KECY/ CNN) - Inflation has impacted just about everything - including groceries.

Butter has been hit especially hard.

The wall street journal reports butter prices are up 24 percent

That's almost twice as much as the overall increase in U.S. grocery prices over the same period.

Butter supply shortages are reportedly to blame.

According to Food and Wine magazine, America's stores of butter are at their lowest levels since 2017.

The butter shortage, caused by factors including labor shortages and a decline in milk production, couldn't come at a worse time.
