ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Holiday meals in New York state might be pricier this Thanksgiving.

A survey by the New York Farm Bureau found a 22 percent price increase for the average Thanksgiving Day dinner over last year - from $44.74 to $55.53 to feed 10 people. That includes a more than $8 average increase in the cost for a 16-pound turkey.

Farm Bureau volunteer shoppers sampled prices in different regions of the state for 15 Thanksgiving food items ranging from turkey, to stuffing, to pumpkin pie mix.

The survey found price decreases for a gallon of milk, fresh carrots, cranberries and pumpkin pie mix.
