Experts believe that supply chain issues and the pandemic could be to blame
U.S (KYMA, KECY) - Some folks might not be thankful this year, and the cost of their Thanksgiving meal may be to blame.
It's about 14% higher than last year, according to the American Farm Bureau's annual survey. The cost of the turkey alone is up 24%.
Supply chain issues are also hiking prices for thanksgiving staples.
It's also hard to predict demand for meat. The government is offering a rosier perspective than the Farm Bureau.
The U.S Department Of Agriculture says Americans are spending five percent more on Thanksgiving meals.
