Thanksgiving Dinner Costing More This Year
If you're having the family over for Thanksgiving this year, get ready to spend more money! Like everything else, the costs are going up.
According to the folks at the American Farm Bureau Federation, Turkey-Fest 2011 prices have gone up about 13%.
The cost to feed a group of 10 this year is expected to be about $49.20, compared to last year's $43.47.
Their list includes Turkey, sweet potatoes, rolls, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.
The main reason for the price increase? The bird!
"Turkey prices are higher this year primarily due to strong consumer demand both here in the U.S. and globally," said John Anderson, an AFBF senior economist.
Or... How about Turkey TV dinners? Those go on sale, 10 for $10!!!
