According to a new survey, this will cost an average of $4.89 per person this year, down from $5.19 last year.
The average Thanksgiving dinner will cost $4.89 per person this year, down 22 cents from last year and the lowest cost since 2010. Part of the reason is the healthy supply of turkeys in the United States. Prices have also dropped on sweet potatoes, rolls and green beans. Prices have gone up on stuffing, cranberries and pumpkin pies but the overall cost is down. How many people are going to be at your Thanksgiving dinner? What will you be serving?
