JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- "What we're doing is enjoying Memorial Day weekend, we've been out here since Friday night," said camper Joe Carmon.
Spending the weekend camping with friends and family should be an inexpensive way to unwind.
"We've been out here every day, fishing, camping, cooking out," said camper Tracy Smith.
But it's the cooking out part of the trip that's really starting to bite into people's wallets.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, the price of beef has gone up 27% since last summer. The price of pork: 32%. And if you want an ear of sweet corn to go with it, well, that's gone up 87%.
And while the Department of Agriculture is expecting overall grocery costs in the US to rise 4% this year, Americans still feel the burn the most at the pump.
"The gas to get out here was the most expensive," said Smith.
