Cost Of The Thanksgiving Meal Up This Year

The Thanksgiving meal will cost a bit more this year.  Economists with the American Farm Bureau Federation say we could see about a 5% increase in the cost of the meal.  Generally, food prices in the US are up about 3.7%, with the driving factors being labor shortages, transportation cost increases, and supply chain issues

Last year, a meal for 10 had cost about $47.  You can add about 5% to that figure this year, bringing the same meal to about $49.35.  The increases start with the producers seeing an increase in their cost, including feed, fuel, and more.
