Turkey and all the trimmings will cost you a little less this year. The American Farm Bureau Federation reports that the average Thanksgiving dinner will cost $49.04. That's 44 cents less than last year. Now, I don't know everything that gets factored into that "average" dinner at $49.04. But at least it gives you some idea of what to anticipate. I'm on the cheap end, I can tell. Get me a couple slabs of white meat, jellied cranberries and Stove Top and I'm probably good. :-)  Now, if you're traveling, airline and train ticket prices are up. But AAA says that gas prices are down 25 cents a gallon from this time last year. Here's hoping you are getting prepped for a great Thanksgiving! DB
