*LIST* Fast Food Chains Where Prices Have Increased The Most

The fast food drive-thru used to be the place where you could always get a cheap tasty meal in a hurry, even if it wasn’t the most nutritious. But those days are over as paying for your order could easily give you sticker shock now. Fast food has gotten a lot more expensive, but how much more? New research shows us just how much prices have increased.

  • FinanceBuzz crunched the numbers from 2014 and compared them to today’s prices to determine which fast food chains have raised prices the most in the past decade.
  • McDonald’s tops the list with the highest increase in the last 10 years, with menu items going up an average of 100%.
  • That’s three times the national rate of inflation during the same time period.
  • For example, a 10-piece order of Chicken McNuggets that was once $5.99 is now $10.99.
  • But Mickey D’s isn’t alone in their price hikes. Taco Bell, which used to be the place you could buy a meal with loose change found in your car, has raised prices 81%.
