At least three out of five people say they're going to a barbecue for the Fourth of July next week...it's the most popular cookout day of the year.
And good news if you're hosting one: Apparently it's not going to come anywhere CLOSE to breaking the bank.
The American Farm Bureau just released its annual study on how much a summer cookout should cost...and it's $55.70 for 10 people, or about $5.60 per person. That seems so cheap.
They say that for those prices, you can buy:
Eight hot dogs and buns
Eight cheeseburgers and buns
Lemonade and chocolate milk
Watermelon for dessert
The price is down 1% from last year thanks to slightly lower meat prices.
