Meat products are projected to cost up to 4% more next year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

From hamburgers to bacon, most of Americans' favorite meat products are expected to cost between 3% and 4% more this year, according to a December 2012 forecast by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The higher meat prices are linked to the historic drought that struck much of America's farmlands this year, causing the price of corn -- a common ingredient in animal feed -- to skyrocket.
