Tailgating costs are up ‘substantially’ this year as travel, food costs are hit by inflation



Indianapolis, Indiana — The cost of beer has gone up nearly 5% since last July, according to a new report by Wells Fargo. Groceries are up 13% and propane and firewood are up 22%.

According to economists suggest, one way to save money is to swap hot dogs for chicken and ground beef because they’re less expensive.

According to Scott Keyes, founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights, Indianapolis Colts fans who travel to different stadiums around the country should book flights now.

You can find hard-to-find bargains right now because everyone is still thinking of summer holiday travel and not what sporting events will happen later on in the fall and winter, Keyes said.

“Winter jackets are going to be cheapest if you purchase them in summer, so too with those winter holiday flights,” Keyes said. “Always book opposite season.”

The next Colts home game is Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
