BILLINGS -

Good news for those cooking a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner this year. The average cost of this year's feast for 10 people won't be as expensive.

The American Farm Bureau Federation says the average cost for the 2013 Thanksgiving meal is $49.04, down 44 cents from last year. The organization says the cost of a turkey went down about 3 cents per pound. Also cheaper this year, brown-n-serve rolls, green peas, cubed bread stuffing, and fresh cranberries. What is more expensive this year? Sweet potatoes, whole milk, and pumpkin pie mix. It's the 28th year the federation has put together the price survey.
