Costco customers won’t see any price increase on the $1.50 hot dog and soda combo. The warehouse store where discounts prevail has decided to keep the long-standing price tag, according to a Wall Street Journal article. “The warehouse retailer has never raised the price of its hot dog combo, a staple in the store’s food courts since 1985,” the article said. “Even with the U.S. inflation rate at its highest level in more than four decades, Costco also has no plans to adjust prices hot dog combinations in the future.”
The article further notes, “If the price of the hot dog combo followed the rate of inflation, it would cost about $4.13 today, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”
