Turkey trouble: Cost of Thanksgiving dinner up $3 from last year

As the calendar turns from October to November, the focus turns from pumpkins to turkeys as we look ahead to Thanksgiving.

According to the Virginia Farm Bureau, Thanksgiving Dinner will cost $50.01 on average this year to feed ten adults.

That price includes turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, cranberries, a carrot and celery tray, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream for dessert.

The cost is about $3 more than last year; some people attribute that to the improving economy and higher livestock prices.
