UDSA reports higher turkey prices ahead of Thanksgiving

EL PASO, Texas - Thanksgiving Day meals are expected to cost extra, as Americans are dealing with high inflation.

The Unites States Department of Agriculture reports that the holiday bird will cost an average of $1.99 per pound, compared to $1.15 in 2021.

This comes out to a 73% increase in prices for what many consider the staple of the Thanksgiving feast.

Farmers are also dealing with a larger number of cases of Bird Flu, which has led to a lower availability.

There's a chance suppliers could add more turkeys to the market quote "at the last minute"​​​​​​​, according to experts.
