For this 4th of July, will you be having a cookout?

A barbeque complete with potato salad and watermelon?

Perhaps top it off with a root beer float or black cow?

Or will you be having a microwaved burrito and a handful of ginger snaps due to ‘Bidenomics’?

Turns out this 4th of July will be the most expensive in history!

We know you did that, Biden. Thanks!

The price for a cookout estimates to be about $300 more than it was back in 2021!

WATCH the increase in these prices:

ABC News reports:

Inflation concerns are hitting the holiday table, with average Fourth of July cookout costs expected to soar to their highest level ever, according to new research.

This year’s American Farm Bureau Fourth of July market basket survey found that the average cost of summer cookout staples — fixings needed to feast on cheeseburgers, chicken breasts, pork chops, potato chips, pork and beans, fresh strawberries, homemade potato salad, fresh-squeezed lemonade, chocolate chip cookies and ice cream — for a gathering of 10 people will set revelers back $71.22, up 5 percent from last year and up 30 percent from five years ago.

The figure has topped $7 per person for the first time ever.

The Independence Day grocery bill is in line with the increased inflation that has hit consumers over the past year.

The Farm Bureau’s experts estimate that 2 pounds of ground beef will cost an average of $12.77, an increase of about a dollar, or 11 percent, from last year. That comes despite the number of fed cattle in the supply chain this spring being higher than last year.

The overall cattle inventory is the smallest it has been in 73 years, however, and beef in cold storage is setting record lows for recent years, the bureau estimates.

Certain animal welfare laws, such as California’s Proposition 12 — which requires farmers to give their livestock a certain amount of space to graze — have also affected the supply. This is the first year that the law has been in full effect, per the bureau.

The change has had a notable impact on pork chops prices, which are up 8 percent nationally compared to last year — or about $15.49 for three pounds. Meanwhile, pork chop prices in California were about $19.91 for 3 pounds.

For those out there that are on a tight budget but still want to be patriotic, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s a quick dish you can make:

Get some saltine crackers.

Get some ketchup.

Get some blueberry jam.

Now decorate some of them with ketchup, some with blueberry jam and leave some plain.

There’s your red, white and blue.

And you’re all set.

Feeds up to 100 people*  (*if you buy enough crackers to feed 100 people).

Thank you Biden for putting us first, according to your Press Secretary.

For those feeling nostalgic, here’s a flashback to prices in 2019:

Want a better option?

I’ve got you covered:

As usual, I’ve got you covered!

Allow me to introduce you to my friends….

I’ve personally searched out and partnered with one of these ranchers!

Even been out to one of the ranches in Idado to see it myself and it’s pretty incredible!

They’re doing everything right….

100% FREE from Antibiotics, added Hormones and mRNA:

They don’t depend on ranchers….because they ARE the ranchers!

Oh and they also own and control every other step in the process too!

The ranch, the processing, the packing and the shipping!

Think all meat is the same?

You have no idea until you actually try real meat.

The stuff you get at the store has been so processed and “preserved” that you don’t know the difference until you taste how it SHOULD be….

Check this out:

So if you want in and want to make sure you have a direct line to antibiotic free, free range pasture raised, no added hormones and no mRNA jab never not ever….I’ve got you covered!

It’s even called WLT Beef!
