Packing a Picnic For This Year’s 4th? $6 Per Head
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Packing a picnic for the Fourth of July has a new price tag: less than $6 per person.
The American Farm Bureau Federation this year launched an informal price survey to tally the cost of hot dogs, burgers and other Independence Day fare.
The group says the average cost of a summertime picnic including hot dogs, cheeseburgers, pork spare ribs, potato salad and lemonade comes to $57.20 for 10 people, or $5.72 per person.
The American Farm Bureau Federation's picnic menu also includes baked beans, watermelon, corn chips, chocolate milk, ketchup and mustard.
