Your Fourth of July Barbecue Should Only Cost You $6 Per Person?

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 . . . pork ribs . . . potato salad . . . baked beans . . . chips . . . condiments . . . lemonade and chocolate milk . . . and watermelon for dessert.

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