Thanksgiving dinner price is up
The price for your Thanksgiving feast on Thursday is up compared to last year.
American Farm Bureau Federation’s 36th annual survey indicated the average cost of this year’s meal for 10 is still affordable at a cost of $53.31 which comes out to less than $6 a person. It is a 14 percent increase from last year’s average of $46.90. Turkey prices are up 24 percent from last year at $23.99 for a 16-pound bird.
Shopper volunteers for the Farm Bureau checked on prices between Oct. 26 to Nov. 8, about two weeks prior to grocery stores featuring low prices on whole frozen turkeys.
