BALTIMORE — Have you been to a fast food drive-thru lately, or ordered a pizza?

Have you noticed prices are significantly higher?

Well, according to a new study by the folks at BravoDeal, your eyes are not deceiving you.

Turns out Maryland is the fifth ranked most expensive state for fast food.

For example, BravoDeal says the average cost of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich in Maryland is $3.84 - 14 percent more than the national average.

A McDonald's Big Mac now costs Maryland customers more than $5, compared to many other states where it's still priced in the fours.
