Inflation hits 4th of July celebrations
Florida Rep. Vern Buchanan discusses the rise in prices as the cost of 4th of July cookouts are up 17% from last year on ‘Fox Business Tonight.’
The Fourth of July is an annual federal holiday that celebrates the day the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
That day, 246 years ago, there were roughly 2.5 million people living in the newly formed nation’s 13 colonies.
Now the U.S. has a population of more than 331.8 million, and many of these American households will participate in a Fourth of July gathering or event.
