Joe Erlinger, president of McDonald’s USA, put out a letter citing “viral social posts and poorly sourced reports that McDonald’s has raised prices significantly beyond inflationary rates.”.

The average price of a Big Mac in the U.S. was $4.39 in 2019, Joe Erlinger, president of McDonald’s USA, via press release.

Despite a global pandemic and historic rises in supply chain costs, wages and other inflationary pressures in the years that followed, the average cost is now $5.29.

That’s an increase of 21% (not 100%), Joe Erlinger, president of McDonald’s USA, via press release.

Other McDonald's franchisees are offering deals such as "buy one, get one" breakfast sandwiches to entice customers.

Affordable prices and creating memorable moments are what McDonald’s is all about.
