The Andie Summers Show

Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

This year’s Thanksgiving may be the most expensive meal in the holiday’s history. Nearly every ingredient that makes up the average turkey dinner is facing price increases and product shortages. Dinner rolls, pie, coffee, and even disposable roasting pans cost more this year because of the pandemic. The average price-per-pound for turkeys is expected to shatter records. Turkey cost $1.15 per pound last year. This year, that price has jumped to $1.41 per pound
