There was something going on at In-n-Out on April 1st, but it wasn't plans to expand their empire to the Big Apple. It was actually the day they put in place a tiny bump in prices, upping items on their beloved menu by ten cents apiece. That means "their cheeseburgers have finally crossed the $2 line," remarks the OC Weekly, adding that still means they're affordable, adding "It's one of those incrementally minute things that you don't realize has happened until eventually, ten years later, you think to yourself, 'Wow, a burger here used to be less than two dollars!'"

So why the increase in prices?

Pretty straightforward, explained a cashier: "the price increase was made as a response to rising produce costs."

It's a small price to pay for what remains one of the best burgers in Los Angeles...and the OC.
