Meat eaters beware, your love for beef is getting more expensive.
U.S. beef prices are at an all time high and they could go higher.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the national average for a pound of ground beef is $4.01.
That’s 56 cents more than the same time last year.
Industry experts blame the record high on greater consumer demand on the lowest cattle numbers in more than 40-years.
