Thanksgiving has come and gone, and thanks to President Joe Biden, it was the most expensive Turkey Day on record.
Now Christmas is right around the corner and American workers are wondering if it’s going to be more of the same.
But a new study finds it might be the kiddos who are hardest hit this Christmas season.
Bidenflation taking a bite out of the Holidays
This year, under President Joe Biden’s watch, American families paid huge increases to celebrate Independence Day with a barbeque.
President Biden followed that up with record high candy prices this Halloween.
And as families across the country polish off their Thanksgiving leftovers, they’re trying to get value out of every bite.
That’s because once again, the President’s fiscal policies made this Turkey Day the most expensive in U.S. history.
First, Americans who traveled by road this past Thanksgiving paid the highest gas prices ever for the traditional November Holiday.
Biden’s new record, breaks the old one set under Barack Obama.
According to GasBuddy, the average price at the pump on Thanksgiving Day was $3.68.
GasBuddy reports that’s nearly 30¢ higher than last year, and over 20¢ higher than the previous record of $3.44 set in 2012 when Biden’s old boss, then-President Obama was in the Oval Office.
But that wasn’t all, the cost of cooking a turkey dinner for the family this year was through the roof – and again, another record President Biden would rather not own.
The previous most expensive year to host a Thanksgiving dinner was all the way back in 2021 – President Biden’s first Thanksgiving as Commander-in-Chief.
However, Biden broke his own bad record.
Every year, the American Farm Bureau breaks down the average cost of a Thanksgiving feasting, looking at the price of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, dinner rolls, cranberries and pumpkin pie.
Last year, that turkey dinner cost the average American family $53.31 – a 14% increase from former President Donald Trump’s final year in the White House.
But that was a bargain compared to this year.
According to the Farm Bureau, this year the supper at the Thanksgiving table set workers back a whopping $64.05 – 20% more than last year, and nearly $20 more than Trump’s final Turkey Day as POTUS.
Biden putting coal in stockings this Christmas
Unfortunately, Biden’s trend of unaffordable Holidays is going to continue this Christmas.
A new survey by CRC Research found 69% of people say they’re cutting back on Christmas costs this year.
And as parents tighten the belts on their Santa suits over the course of the next month, it’ll be kids who feel the brunt of the brutal Biden economy.
According to the poll, 81% of parents with children under 18 are cutting back due to the increase in prices from last year.
Much like everything else under Joe Biden’s watch, the Holidays are simply unaffordable for most Americans with leftists in charge.
