Americans preparing to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday can expect to fork over even more money with the average price of a traditional cookout costing at least 17 percent more than it did in 2021.

Prices for all the BBQ staples, including burgers, hot dogs, chicken, have gone up and could cost $76.94 for the average cookout for a family of four, according to the Consumer Price Index compiled by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The price is more than 17 percent from last year’s total of $65.46.

Across the board, Americans are suffering under Biden inflation.  The costs of energy, gas, and food have risen astronomically since last year.
