If you’re hosting a Fourth of July picnic, it should cost less than $6 a person to feed whomever you invite.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says the average price of a standard Independence Day meal in 28 cities is $5.59 per tummy. The menu would include hot dogs, cheese burgers and spare ribs – plus potato salad, baked beans, watermelon, chocolate milk and lemonade.

Wisconsin’s price is about 13 cents less than the average in 21 other states.
