July 4th Cookout Costs 17 Percent More Than A Year Ago
By Mark Heim, AL.com, July 1, 2022
It looks like inflation will hit you again. This time for your July 4 feast.
U.S. consumers will pay more for their favorite Independence Day cookout foods, including cheeseburgers, pork chops, chicken breasts, homemade potato salad, strawberries and ice cream, based on a new American Farm Bureau Federation survey.
The average cost of a summer cookout for 10 people is $69.68, which breaks down to less than $7 per person. The overall cost for the cookout is up 17 percent or about $10 from last year, a result of ongoing supply chain disruptions, inflation and the war in Ukraine.
