Consumers saw record-high egg prices when inflation and the avian flu came together. But, now as prices begin to decline, border patrol agents are reporting an increase in egg smuggling at the southern border.

On the other hand, prices for the Tesla Model Y are rising about 2%, with the company citing an increase in demand and changes in policy about tax credit eligibility.
