Hot dogs at sporting events
"Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some ..."
Stop right there, readers say. Many maintain they will never buy sporting event food because of the high prices.
The prices have risen steadily in recent years. In 2011, on average, baseball fans paid $3.88 for a hot dog and an additional $3.59 for a soft drink, according to ISM Media's annual fan cost index (pdf). In fact, fans paid an average of two per cent more on ticket and concession prices than in 2010. (San Francisco Giants fans paid a whopping 14.1 per cent more for tickets, the highest jump in the sport.)
