BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The only thing losing weight after Thanksgiving dinner will be the wallets of American consumers.
This year the cost of a dinner for 10 people hit a new record high of $50.00. That’s according to the American Farm Bureau. They started tracking thanksgiving costs almost 30 years ago.
The family meal is up $0.70 from last year. In 1986 when the first survey was conducted a Thanksgiving dinner cost about $28.00 and it’s been going up a little more each year.
Not everything is more expensive. The numbers also showed prices are down for dairy items, cranberries, and peas.
