It’s been an expensive year to eat beef, and 2015 doesn’t look any cheaper.

It looks almost certain that beef’s downward trend will stretch at least another year. The retail price of ground beef was up 17 percent in September from a year earlier, and steaks and roasts (PDF) also got pricier, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
