McDonald's Increases Dollar Menu Prices

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Fast food at McDonald's is getting more expensive. Area residents will see a rise in prices as the company eliminates the "Dollar Menu" in favor of the "Dollar Menu and More."

The new menu still features dollar-priced items, but increases some items between one and five dollars. The company said it is pushing past the dollar price barrier to catch up with rising costs of labor and products such as beef.

"There's been pressure on beef prices to be going up and so that's putting pressure on all fast food providers to have to increase their prices to match increasing costs," said West Texas A&M economics professor Neil Meredith.

One favorite dollar menu item missing off the new list is the McDouble, which will see a 20 percent price increase. Amarillo resident Wallace Wellington said he isn't happy the McDouble didn't make the dollar cut. "I'm very upset about that because of the fact that's been the household item. That's been something I've had to have when I come into McDonald's."

This is the first time McDonald's has increased dollar menu prices to match inflation in almost a decade.
