Turkey shortage driving up prices

Thanksgiving is going to cost more than usual this year.

CNN— Thanksgiving is going to cost more than usual this year. Part of that is due to a Turkey shortage driving up prices.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Turkeys are 23% more expensive compared to 2021. That’s partly the result of bird flu, which has decimated some farms, as well as inflation.

As a result, shoppers are looking to secure their holiday birds much earlier than usual.

Overall, the typical Thanksgiving dinner is expected to cost nearly 14% more than last year.
