50.9 million Americans will travel over Thanksgiving -- a 3.3 percent increase over 2016. According to the AAA, more than 45 million will travel by car between next Wednesday and the Sunday after Thanksgiving. About four million will fly.
The American Farm Bureau Federation just released the results of their annual study on how much it should cost you to serve Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people this year. And the answer is . . . $49.12, which is the lowest price in five years. For that 49 bucks, they say you should be able to get a 16-pound turkey . . . stuffing . . . sweet potatoes . . . rolls with butter . . . peas . . . cranberries . . . a veggie tray . . . pumpkin pie with whipped cream . . . coffee . . . and milk.
BTW, the average person will spend $967 on the holidays this year, on things like gifts, parties, clothes, and food.
