The next few days are big for eggs, with egg hunts and Easter on Sunday, and there's good news if you're buying eggs.
Usually, a week or so before Easter, there's a big bump in prices, but not this time. In fact, one USDA economist says prices are down 8% year over year.
USDA Livestock, Poultry and Dairy Analyst Shayle Shagam said, "Prices are down dramatically. This year, we have a lot of eggs available."
Analysts say production is running 3.5% higher than a year ago. Retail experts are forecasting egg prices to decrease 1% to 2% this year, after last year's 11% hike.
