SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - As the Fourth of July approaches, food for celebration is not cheap.

Many are preparing to hit the outdoors for the Fourth of July weekend. Some are going to the pools, having friends over or grilling.

Buying food for the holiday celebrations may set you back a bit with your funds. While brands differ, a 10-pound bag of leg quarters is listed at $9.08 at Walmart, $6.99 at Brookshire’s and $7.90 at Kroger.

“Like leg quarters, they’re usually like $5-$6, they were $10. They are $10 now,” said Kristal Law, who was out shopping.

Law said the increase in prices will not stop or downsize her celebration. Chicken, ribs and potato salad, among other classics, still are on the menu.
