This equates to 4% of consumption expenditure on agricultural commodities (at farm gate prices), and compares to an average 71% in the late 1980s.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Agricultural commodity prices are a key factor in determining food retail prices but other factors are also important, such as energy prices and exchange rates. Therefore the impact of CAP on consumers' weekly cost of food will be less than the 4% figure reported above.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There is no agreed OECD methodology to disaggregate estimates to individual EU member states, so these figures are not available at the UK level.</p><p> </p>
