The prices of turkey and other Thanksgiving staples have risen significantly since last year. The American Farm Bureau Federation says the price of turkey has gone up by almost 4 dollars for an average sized bird. This is due to an increase in exports. Pumpkin Pie has gone up by 41 cents and stuffing has gone up by 24 cents. They predict the cost of your average Thanksgiving dinner will raise around 6 dollars in total. They expect prices to start leveling off next year.
