Thanksgiving Inflation Rate at 13%

November 14, 2011

Every year the Farm Bureau estimates the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people. They base this on the cost of a consistent marketbasket of products at a number of supermarkets across the country.

This year the cost is up 13% over last year. In my continuing confusion about the actual rate of inflation this is an interesting data point.
