There's good news for American families this Thanksgiving
- the cost of a turkey feast has fallen for the third straight year. The American Farm Bureau
has found that the classic ingredients for a Thanksgiving dinner to feed 10 people will cost $48.90 in 2018. That's less than $5 per person and a 22 cent decrease on the 2017 average of $49.12.
An estimated 46 million turkeys are eaten every year at Thanksgiving and survey from the National Turkey Federation found 88 percent of Americans will be tucking into one this week. The falling price of the bird is the driving force behind the decline in the cost of the holiday dinner
with a pound averaging $1.36, down 3 percent on last year. In addition to turkey, milk, sweet potatoes, green peas and a dozen rolls were all among the items seeing their cost decline.
