Thanksgiving Dinner Statistics: Cost To Go Up 13% This YearNovember 10, 2011 7:19 pm
We spotted this today:
“According to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual survey of what it will cost to put on a Thanksgiving meal for 10 people, the average cost has increased to $49.20, a $5.73 price increase from the 2010 average of $43.47.
The survey looks at the costs for more than 10 of the items you’d find on a traditional Turkey Day table, including stuffing, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, rolls… and of course the bird.
The item most responsible for the cost increase is the turkey itself, which soared from an average of $17.66 for a 16-lb bird in 2010 to $21.57 in 2011, an increase of around $.25/pound.”
