The price of cooking out for the Fourth of July is a little lower than it was a year ago. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Amy Eckelberg says they looked at the cost of buying 14 food items that are commonly served at cookouts.
“That price came in a $54.22 and that was just a decrease of .08 cents from last year” said Eckelberg.
Eckelberg says commodity prices have been relatively stable over the past year.
“While we did see some prices on certain items fluctuate, really across the board we are just seeing some great prices for our customers.”
Pricing was based on buying food for ten people. Items looked at for the survey include ketchup, lemonade, pork spare ribs, and ground round.
