The price of bananas and other tropical fruits have been on a downward trend since the early 1970s, and the price of a banana has fallen to as low as $1.50 in some markets.
However, a new study finds that a banana is now worth $4, according to the BBC.
It is also worth $1 more than a pound of potatoes, and $2 more than beef.
According to the research, the average price of an edible banana is $4.50, or about 30 percent more than it was in 2015.
“It’s not a surprise to anyone that prices have gone down,” said Roberta Barchat, a senior economist at the University of California, Davis.
“But it’s a surprise because it’s been going down for so long.”
Barcha’s research, published Monday in the journal Nature Communications, shows the price index for bananas has increased about 20 percent over the past 30 years, with prices ranging from $1 in 1970 to $4 in 2016.
The researchers calculated the value of an individual banana by taking the cost of a pound and multiplying it by the total number of bananas in the market.
They also looked at the price per kilogram, which is the amount of food consumed in a kilogram.
This calculation showed that in 2014, the value was $0.03 per pound, or nearly a fifth of a penny.
Barcho’s research found that the average prices of bananas have increased about 19 percent over this period.
However they’re not the only things rising in price.
The cost of gasoline rose by 10 percent between 2000 and 2015, according the Associated Press.
The price index was also boosted by the advent of digital technology, which has made it easier for consumers to purchase goods online.
In 2018, the median price of food was about $3.05, and a pound was about 13 cents.
The median price for a car rose by 3 percent between 2018 and 2019, according a report from the National Association of Realtors.
It’s also important to note that prices don’t include any taxes or other fees that people may be paying.
In the United States, the federal government charges sales tax on the average value of a purchase, but a tax on certain items may be exempt from the tax, such as the cost for a health insurance premium.
