Did you travel over hills and dales to Grandmother's house this year for Thanksgiving? If so, then know that the price you paid for gallon of gas was 27.3 cents higher than the same timeframe last year according to MichiganGasPrices.com.
How about the Thanksgiving meal? Did it contain all the great staples of turkey, potatoes, cranberries, stuffing and pumpkin pie? According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, you paid on average about 1.3 percent higher for a traditional holiday feast compared to prices last year.
Last year according to the organization the average price of 12 traditional components of a Thanksgiving meal would have cost $43.91, while this year those same items would have cost $43.47 - up 56 cents.
It would be easy to get caught up in all of this and forget that even with the higher expenses, there still remains much to be thankful for this year.
Stop, look around, and give thanks.
