i think some ingredients are on the pricey side, but when compared to meat prices..i'm not sure.
since i buy organic, i think my grocery bill is typically more than the meat-eaters...that said, i think it also depends on where you shop.
Meat and cheese were definitely our highest grocery expenses, because we were at a point where we were buying only local organic meat and cheese.
I know we do better in the summer months thanks to in-season produce, but overall I think being vegan helps us out. Food is a budget priority for us, though, so I don't really care if certain things cost more.
I found this great cookbook called Vegan On The Cheap and seriously it has saved my grocery bill. Theres tons of recipes to make basic food items/pantry stock on your own for cheap... most recipes under 1$/serving. I love it and they are pretty yummy too!

I have no idea since I always skip the meat aisle.
I think we are lucky in California because I have noticed that produce is cheaper here than other places. We also have a fruit farm around here than we go to that has cheap prices. In our last house we had over 15 fruit trees and we are currently in the process of planting them here so that helps too. Fruit is easy to grow and care for here.
