At least three out of five people say they're going to a barbecue for the Fourth of July next'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

Pork ribs

Potato salad

Baked beans



Lemonade and chocolate milk

Watermelon for dessert

The price is down 1% from last year thanks to slightly lower meat prices.
