Thanksgiving meal will cost 13% more with commodities run-up

It's going to cost a bit more to put a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on the table this year. It's a result of soaring costs for commodities that are raising prices for food makers, grocers and consumers. The costs for nearly everything from cranberries to pumpkin pie are up. But the biggest price hike is for the main course: a 16-pound turkey costs 4 percent more this year at $21.57.
