If you feel your go-to McDonald's order has started to break the bank in recent years, you might be on to something according to a recent report.

For one particular sandwich, the price has increased by 168% in the past decade.

Online Concern About McDonald's Prices

Scroll social media just about any time of the day and you'll surely run across someone who has a beef with fast food prices. It's understandable as customers are hit hard while chains try to offset costs.

McDonald's, in particular, has become a favorite target among those with super-sized complaints regarding the cost of a meal out.

Earlier this year, several TikTok videos surfaced from people claiming the McDonald's Filet-O-Fish sandwich had gotten smaller. McDonald's has since denied the claim.

A couple months later, a viral post on X (formerly Twitter) lamented about the current cost of breakfast at McDonald's.
