So, where IS that strong fishy odor coming from, anyway?
The holiday dinner grocery basket is estimated to cost an average of $60.29, according to data from Datasembly.
That’s 16.4% higher than last year’s basket when comparing the same exact basket of goods. It’s also double the year-over-year increase reported last year at 8.2%, according to the retail data firm.
According to the data, biscuits had the highest price increase year-over-year, rising 47.7%. Butter and russet potatoes weren’t far behind with prices rising 38% and 32.6%, respectively, the data showed.
The smallest increase, according to Datasembly, was the frozen whole turkey with a 6.3% increase. Although it’s an uptick from last year, that’s still down from November, when the firm reported that frozen turkey was up 11% on average.
And yet, somehow, FederalGovCo expects us all to believe that Bidenflation is around 8%. Riiiiiight.
