U.S. retail price of potatoes 1995-2018 The retail price of white potatoes in the United States reached 0.72 U.S. dollars per pound in 2018, a slight decrease from the retail price in the previous year.

Potatoes were originally domesticated in South America but are now one of the most widely produced and consumed crops worldwide. Though they sometimes get a bad rap for being high in carbohydrates, potatoes are rich in essential nutrients and millions of people throughout history have relied on potatoes for sustenance. However, in the United States, the retail volume of potatoes saw a substantial decrease from 14.5 billion pounds to 12.4 billion pounds between 2016 and 2018.
