Ridgewood NJ, the American Farm Bureau says the average cost of preparing Thanksgiving dinner next month will crack the $50 barrier.

The price of turkeys is up by 20 percent in many places from a year ago. Prices on meat, poultry, fish, and eggs are up 10.5 percent. Nestlé and Procter & Gamble are warning consumers to brace for more price increases.

Many factors are involved, but President Biden bears some of the responsibility. Supply chains are still snarled from lockdowns, gas to transport goods is up over 25 percent, labor shortages from excessive unemployment benefits linger and federal spending is fueling inflation.

Thanksgiving will still be a joyous occasion this year, but we won’t be surprised if some dinner tables feature someone muttering “Let’s go, Brandon” under their breath.
