U.S. retail price of eggs 1995-2018 In 2018, the retail price for a dozen eggs in the United States was 1.60 U.S. dollars. Egg prices in the United States peaked in 2015, when a dozen eggs cost 2.75 U.S. dollars on average.
U.S. Egg Production

The United States was one of the leading producers of eggs in the world in 2017, second only to China. In that year, approximately 106.7 billion eggs were produced in the United States. There are two main categories that farm chickens fall into: broiler chickens and laying hens. The first are raised for meat and the second are raised for laying eggs. The U.S. state with the most laying hens is Iowa, with about 57.43 million in 2018. Some of the other top egg producing states include Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Egg Retail in the United States

Perhaps because eggs are uniform in taste and appearance and most consumers cannot tell one brand of chicken egg apart from another, private label eggs have the highest sales among fresh egg brands in the United States. Eggland’s Best is the leading name brand of fresh eggs in the United States, with sales of 210.87 million U.S. dollars in 2018. The amount that U.S. consumer units spend on eggs varies from region to region. In 2017, consumers in the Western United States spent an average of about 69 U.S. dollars on eggs over the course of the year. The Midwestern United States had the lowest average expenditure on eggs in that year.
