 Post subject: McDonald's prices go up

McDonald's will be going up on some of their prices to help offset the increase in prices they are facing, etc.:

Will you still eat at McD's even if paying a higher price to do so?

My wife loves McD's, which is comparatively expensive here. I'll continue to eat there on the same frequency I eat there now (about twice a month).

Even thought it is my favorite fast food joint, I rarely eat out at McDonald's anyway. This isn't likely to have much of an effect for me. Maybe I'll get a smaller order of fries occasionally.

I don't think they realize that it's becoming harder to live without increasing wages or salaries, so in the long run, won't they actually be making less money?

Well, if you're talking about an increase of five or ten cents, I don't think it'll matter. However, if you're talking about a price increase of one or two dollars, then yeah, I know a lot of people who will stop eating there.

A price check of the local store's menu revealed that my typical order, the quarter pounder, is currently $2.99. When a hamburger tops $3, it's time for me to eat somewhere else. For that price I could get a couple of days' worth of dinners from the grocery store.

One thing I recently learned about McDonald's, which I didn't really like, is that each individual store can set their own prices. That's why you won't find pricing information on the company's official web site. One store might charge $2 for an item, while another could charge $3 for the same thing.
