LOS ANGELES , September 27, 2012 () – According to a National Restaurant Association (NRA) analysis of data collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, menu prices at U.S. restaurants rose 2.8% year-over-year in the year ending in August, Nation's Restaurant News reported Sept. 27.

The quick-service segment saw a 3.3% rise while full-service restaurants saw a 2.6% increase.

The price increases could have been much higher given the rising price of commodities, but restaurants are remaining cautious of still-lagging levels of consumer confidence, said Hudson Riehle, the NRA's senior vice president of research.
