Thanksgiving Dinner Will Cost Less This Year

MarketWatch says the average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people this year is $61.17. That’s 4.5% less than last year. The decrease in cost is due to cheaper turkey prices, which are down 5.6% compared to last year. Despite this drop in cost, grocery prices have risen by 5% in the past year.
