AN ARM AND A TURKEY LEG

 

This year’s Thanksgiving dinner is going to cost an arm and a turkey leg for American families.

 

Thanks to un-relenting inflation that’s persisted for the past 19 months of Joe Biden’s presidency, the price of hosting a Thanksgiving dinner is up 14.9% this year.

 

Back up: Last year’s Thanksgiving also saw 14% inflation compared to 2020.

 

Here’s what that looks like for these popular holiday foods:

 

🦃 Turkey: +16.9%

🥔 Potatoes: +15.2%

🍚 14-oz bag of stuffing: +69%

🥧 Pies: +18.6%

🍠 Fresh vegetables: +8.3%

 

Big picture: While Joe Biden’s economic policies deserve the lion’s share of the blame, experts also put some turkey-related blame on the avian flu, which killed almost 50 million birds in 2022.

 

Holiday Heroes: Two big-name grocers have pledged to keep their Thanksgiving prices low, despite rising cost pressures.

 

Walmart has rolled back its turkey prices to under $1 per pound.

 

Aldi has pledged to keep its Thanksgiving products at 2019 prices.
