OKLAHOMA CITY -- From apples to oranges, grocery stores compete to get your business and claim to have the best prices in town.

As more Oklahomans look for ways to save money, NEWS 9 put four stores to the test to see who had the best prices.

NEWS 9 shopped at Buy For Less, Crest Foods, Super Target and Walmart for four weeks to compare the cost of eight common items.

"Most families right now are probably taking the cheaper route," said Dale Brooks with Crest Foods. "I don't blame them. You look at what you need and what you can do."

Buy For Less had the cheapest average total grocery bill, followed by Crest.

"We like to be able to beat any of the competition in the area," said Hank Binkowski with Buy For Less.
