BBQ PRICES-OTS-SOT-OTS


THIS IS A BIG STORY BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT THE DOOR ---

RISING FOOD PRICES ARE BUSTING BBQ BUDGETS!

TAKE A LOOK.

KERRY SANDERS VERBATE: If you're not paying more for your hamburger, then in all likelihood your burger has gotten smaller.why? Well, in a word, drought. You see the prolonged drought in the southwest led ranchers to recognize that they better start culling their herds, and that's what they've done, but because of that we're at that situation where supply and demand now meet. And on average, the cost of beef is up twenty-four cents just in the last month. It's much the same story with pigs. Bacon prices have spiked sixty-three cents in the past year. If you like bacon burgers then you're really out of luck. Are there alternatives, well yes there are, and the cost on that alternative is holding and no we're not talking about tofu. I'm Kerry Sander's and I'll have all the details coming up on TODAY. Now back to you.

THANKS KERRY.

WHILE SOME FOOD PRICES LIKE BEEF AND LIMES ARE AT RECORD HIGHS,

SOME FOOD PRICES ARE DOWN.

LOBSTERS, LETTUCE AND COFFEE ARE ALL DROPPING IN PRICE. Return to index of stories...
