It seems like everything has gone up in price. Whether it’s daily essentials, like soap, or nourishing food, like fruits and vegetables, we keep on shelling out more and more. And, now, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, your nice backyard barbecue is costing you almost 30 percent more.

Yup, according to the bureau, a barbecue for 12 is costing people $199, which is a 29 percent increase from last year.

Not only has propane increased by 20 percent from 2010, the prices of lettuce and corn has increased as well. And, how about driving to that barbecue? As we all know, gas has risen, too, up 44 percent from last year’s price.

What foods have you noticed rising in price? Are you going to think twice this year before having that annual BBQ?
