USA Today: Food prices drop 1% (Hooray, 1%)

Food prices drop 1% but will stay high for the foreseeable future

Here's one of the key quotes as far as I'm concerned: "Food prices dropped 1% in May compared to the previous month, but remain 37% above May 2010, according to a price index released by the agency."

So what the article should be titled is "Food prices up 37% over same month last year".  Isn't it interesting to see how the media tries to manipulate us?  This article is a perfect example.
