Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner About Same as Last Year

This year's Thanksgiving dinner will cost roughly the same as last year.

Purdue Extension economist Corinne Alexander says shoppers can plan on less expensive turkeys and slight price increases on other holiday favorites.

The current forecast is that turkey prices will be between $1.01 and $1.05 per pound in the fourth quarter.

She adds that most people will pay less for turkeys since grocery stores like to offer deep discounts to lure customers in to buy more profitable items.
