一项调查显示,今年10人享用感恩节大餐的平均成本为46.90美元,人均不到5美元,为2010年以来最低。


华盛顿,11月25日(新华社)——据美国农场联合会(AFBF)最近发布的一项调查显示,今年感恩节晚餐的平均花费比去年下降了4%,因为受COVID-19疫情的影响,许多美国人的庆祝方式将会有所不同。


调查显示,今年10人享用感恩节大餐的平均花费仍为46.90美元,人均不到5美元。这比去年的平均水平下降了2。01美元。


AFBF首席经济学家约翰·牛顿博士说:“今年感恩节晚餐的平均成本是2010年以来最低的。”


纽顿说:“把整只火鸡定价为‘亏本生意’来吸引顾客和转移产品,这是零售商们使用的一种策略,随着圣诞节的临近,这种策略越来越普遍。”


调查显示,大多数感恩节餐桌上的主菜火鸡的售价比去年有所下降,一只16磅重的火鸡只需19.39美元。这大约是每磅1.21美元,比去年下降了7%。


这项非正式调查的购物清单包括火鸡、馅料、红薯、黄油面包卷、豌豆、蔓越莓、蔬菜托盘、生奶油南瓜派、咖啡和牛奶,所有这些食物的数量足够一家10口吃,还有足够的剩菜。

The average cost of this year's Thanksgiving feast for 10 remains affordable at 46.90 U.S. dollars, or less than 5 dollars per person, the lowest since 2010, a survey showed.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The average cost of this year's Thanksgiving dinner declined by 4 percent from last year, as celebrations will look different for many Americans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according a recent survey released by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF).

The average cost of this year's Thanksgiving feast for 10 remains affordable at 46.90 U.S. dollars, or less than 5 dollars per person, the survey showed. This is a 2.01-dollar decrease from last year's average.

"The average cost of this year's Thanksgiving dinner is the lowest since 2010," said AFBF Chief Economist Dr. John Newton.

"Pricing whole turkeys as 'loss leaders' to entice shoppers and move product is a strategy we're seeing retailers use that's increasingly common the closer we get to the holiday," Newton said.

The centerpiece on most Thanksgiving tables -- the turkey -- costs less than last year, at 19.39 dollars for a 16-pound bird, according to the survey. That's roughly 1.21 dollars per pound, down 7 percent from last year.

The shopping list for the informal survey includes turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a veggie tray, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and coffee and milk, all in quantities sufficient to serve a family of 10 with plenty for leftovers.
