Price hikes, sparked by the Coronavirus have some Texans really shaking their heads these days.
But now some businesses are charging a “COVID-19 Surcharge '' to customers.
Some have signs posted alert customers to so-called COVID fees. While others are finding a surcharge on their receipt.
Food costs have seen the highest increases in decades due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants and other businesses are adding a surcharge to help offset their cost.
Some people are even saying that Coronavirus outbreaks at meat processing plants have created a meat shortage.
The popular South Texas BBQ chain Bill Miller's is adding a dollar to every quarter pound of brisket ordered.
Some of the other businesses adding COVID-related surcharges include some salons, and dental offices to help pay for personal protective equipment.
