FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – Prepare to pay a little more for this year's Labor Day cookout.
The price of this year's end of summer meal is 2.5 percent higher than last year.
The biggest increase is pork, which is up more than 10 percent, due to a virus that's plagued pork farmers.
Steaks cost about 9 percent more because of a low cattle supply and increased international demand.
Hot dog prices are up 7 percent, with chicken prices 3 percent higher.
The good news is, the price of soda and beer remain relatively unchanged.
