Washington D.C. -- The cost for a 4th of July picnic is up... a survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation found that the average cost for a picnic for 10 this Independence Day is $58.72. that's more than 5 percent higher than last year.

Meat and diary prices have increased the most in price, including ground round, pork spare ribs and cheese.

There is some good news though... hot dog prices are down as well as the cost of ketchup.
