Firing up the grill this weekend? It could take a bite out of your wallet
Prepare to pay a little more for this Labor Day weekend cookout.
The price of this year’s end of summer meal is 2.5% higher than last year.
The biggest increase is pork, which is up more than 10% due to a virus that’s plagued pork farmers.
Steaks cost about 9% more because of a low cattle supply and increased international demand.
Hot dog prices are up 7% with chicken prices 3% higher.
The good news, the price of soda and beer remain relatively unchanged.
