Americans talking turkey this Thanksgiving might say some not-so-grateful words about the price.

Although there should be adequate supplies of the holiday gobbler, wholesale prices per pound are expected to range between $1.07 and $1.11 - up 3-7 cents a pound from last year, said Purdue University agricultural economist Corinne Alexander. The higher price reflects a general increase in food prices this year, she said.
