With the economy in the toilet under Joe Biden’s watch many Americans have been forced to radically change their day-to-day expenses.

But while Americans are having to watch every penny multi-billion dollar corporations are taking a different approach.

And the jaw-dropping trend fast food restaurants have overwhelmingly embraced since 2014 will leave you awfully upset.

In a shocking revelation, FinanceBuzz has exposed the staggering price hikes that have rocked the fast food industry over the past decade. 

According to their analysis, major chains like McDonald’s, Popeyes, Taco Bell, and more have jacked up their prices at an alarming rate, far outpacing the overall skyrocketing inflation rate under President Joe Biden’s failed policies.

Everyone knows that the nation has suffered under “Bidenomics,” but the jaw-dropping numbers will make your wallet tremble.

For example, McDonald’s has practically doubled their prices since 2014.

From the McChicken sandwich to the iconic Big Mac, prices have soared by as much as 199%, leaving customers with a hefty bill for their fast food fix.

But it’s not just McDonald’s that is guilty of squeezing wallets. 

Popeyes has hiked prices on their chicken combos by a whopping 76%, while Taco Bell’s Beefy 5-Layer Burrito has seen a staggering 132% increase. 

It’s a fast food frenzy as prices skyrocket across the board, but why the sudden surge in prices? 

According to experts like Shubhranshu Singh, Ph.D., associate professor of marketing at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, the COVID pandemic triggered a drastic decrease in deals and promotions. 

As customers face the brunt of skyrocketing prices, deals have become scarce, leaving wallets feeling lighter than ever before.

“It appears the low-price items and deals that are currently offered are mostly to mitigate the recent backlash related to skyrocketing fast-food prices,” Singh revealed. 

It’s a bitter pill to swallow for consumers who once relied on budget-friendly options to satisfy their cravings.

But while prices continue to climb, experts predict that the tide may soon turn. 

With consumers reaching their breaking point, there’s little room left for further increases. 

It’s a glimmer of hope for those tired of shelling out big bucks for a quick bite.
