WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The 2012 drought could soon impact how much we all pay at the grocery store. 

Parts of the West, Great Plains and Midwest are experiencing their worst drought since 1956. The drought has taken a toll on the supply of corn and soybeans.

It's hard to know just how much more you'll end up paying for everything from milk to meat. Some reports suggest milk and salad dressings may see a price hike soon. Others say now is the time to stock up on meat, while the prices are low.
