As the summertime heats up, so do the outdoor grilling activities.

But rising gas prices are also heating up grocery bills.

Since last year, food prices overall are up 4%.

That's nearly double the normal annual increase, compared to the past fifteen years.

This year, a package of eight hot dogs is up 7%, a sixteen ounce bag of chips is up 12%, soda is up 11% and an eight pack of hot dog buns is up 17%.
