We will pay a little more for this year's 4th of July cookout. According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, a typical BBQ for ten people will cost $69.68 this year. The price is up by 17 percent from last year.
Ground beef is the cookout item that has risen in price more than any other. We'll pay 36 percent more to make burgers this 4th of July. Supply chain issues, inflation, and the continuing war in Ukraine are the main factors for the increase. [Today]
