As Americans gear up for the Fourth of July, they face an unexpected burden: soaring food costs due to unyielding inflation. According to the National Retail Foundation, per-person spending on Independence Day food has reached a record-breaking $93.34. That’s a staggering increase and a clear indication of the inflation strains felt by the American populace. Despite the Biden administration’s controversial claim that the cost of a Fourth of July cookout went down, the NRF’s survey contradicts this, showing an actual increase from the previous year. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a significant 10.9% surge in consumer food prices, marking the largest proportional increase in decades. The rising costs of beer, soft drinks, cookies, and bread add to the financial strain on American families. Despite these challenges, the NRF survey reveals that the patriotic spirit remains strong, with 87% of respondents still intending to celebrate Independence Day.
