Average cost of Thanksgiving dinner down from last year

Here's some good news for your bank account ahead of Thanksgiving:

The cost to feed your family for the holiday is down compared to last year, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The group's annual survey found the average price to feed a family of 10 people, plus leftovers is $48.90 on average. That's down 22 cents from last year's average.

The average cost of Thanksgiving dinner is now at its lowest since 2010, according to The Farm Bureau.

Experts say the large supply of Turkeys helps keep overall price down as well.
