We’re going to take a look at how Biden’s inflation has caused the price of tailgating to increase beyond reason. I don’t know about you but I love a good game of football and nothing beats a good old fashioned tailgate party. But with prices skyrocketing, it’s getting harder and harder to afford to have one. Stay tuned for more on this issue.
You can’t even buy a beer for under $10 at some football games these days, and that doesn’t include the price of tickets! But somehow, the cost of tailgating has become even more outrageous. It’s now commonplace to see people spending hundreds – or even thousands – of dollars on food and drink for pre-game parties. What gives? Why is it becoming so expensive to enjoy a day out with your fellow fans? The answer, quite simply, is Joe Biden and the inflation he has caused.
Washington examiner writes. Due to inflation, tailgating outside stadiums is becoming more expensive as football season approaches. According to the Bureau for Labor Statistics, food prices did not change from June to July, but are up 10.9% from last year. In tailgating classics, chicken is up 17.6%, bread rolls are up 13.9%, snacks are up 16.5%, and pickles are up 15.8%. The price of hot dogs has increased by 5%, and produce has increased by 5% to 9%. It is even more expensive to power a grill with propane or firewood, according to a report from Wells Fargo. Gas prices have also risen since last year, making it more expensive to travel to the game. Although gas prices fell this summer, the CPI reported a 75% rise from last July.
Democrats recently passed the Inflation Reduction Act, and it will do little to lower the costs.
Next News Network recently reported. The Granholm administration plans to fight inflation by spending more of your hard-earned money. It doesn’t seem to be doing anything, according to many people. While being questioned about the Inflation Reduction Act by host Brianna Keilar on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Energy secretary Jennifer Granholm made a series of gaffes. Granholm, who only took up her post last week, appeared to be unaware of the key details of the bill, and was repeatedly corrected by Keilar.
It’s outrageous that as the cost of living continues to rise, we are being forced to pay even more for the pleasure of attending a football game. The government needs to do something about this rampant inflation, and soon. Otherwise, we will all be priced out of enjoying some good old-fashioned American fun.
