"A Thanksgiving Day turkey dinner with side dishes and dessert will be 11% more expensive this year, the biggest annual increase since 1990, because of depleted frozen-turkey supplies and rising energy prices.
The average cost of 12 items typically served during the Nov. 22 holiday in the U.S. rose to $42.26 from $38.10 last year, the American Farm Bureau Federation said Thursday."

Here’s the kicker: "Adjusted for inflation, the cost is $20.46, about 9% less than in the first survey in 1986."
Why do I suspect no one really believes that?
