STAMFORD, CT - NOVEMBER 24: A Guatemalan immigrant carves the Thanksgiving turkey on November 24, 2016 in Stamford, Connecticut. Family and friends, some of them U.S. citizens, others on work visas and some undocumented immigrants came together in an apartment to celebrate the American holiday with turkey and Latin American dishes. They expressed concern with the results of the U.S. Presidential election of president-elect Donald Trump, some saying their U.S.-born children fear the possibilty their parents will be deported after Trump's inauguration.

After seeing the cost of Thanksgiving dinner drop to a 10-year low in 2020, The Week says the U.S. is about to face its most expensive Thanksgiving in history, experts say.

The U.S. Farm Bureau predicts the average cost of Thanksgiving dinner will be up by at least 5 percent this year. “When you go to the grocery store and it feels more expensive, that’s because it is,” says Farm Bureau economist Veronica Nigh.

Contributing to the rise are canned cranberries, which cost more because of a steel shortage; turkeys, because the cost of their feed has more than doubled; and dinner rolls, because the cost of baking ingredients has skyrocketed, the bureau reports. Droughts this year will also affect the price of Thanksgiving dinner produce.

“I never seen anything like it,” one sweet potato farmer from North Carolina says. “I don’t know what the answer is, but in the end, it’s all going to get passed on to the consumer.” (The Week)
