The price of ground beef is now above $4 per pound – for the first time ever. This is the second record high in two months. In July it set a record high price of $3.88. In just one month the price rose another 13 cents, or more than 3% in one month.
A year ago, it was $3.54. That’s an increase of 16% in one year. Five years ago the price was just $2.13.
