Story By Associated Press


ACROSS WISCONSIN - For the second year in a row, Wisconsin shoppers can expect Thanksgiving dinner to be a little less expensive.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau says the average price of a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year is $48.40. That's about 50 cents cheaper than it was last year.

It's also a little cheaper than the national average, which is just over $49.

The average price for a 16-pound turkey in Wisconsin is $22.40. That's about 30 cents cheaper than last year. But Wisconsin residents can expect to pay slightly more for items such as milk, rolls and peas.

The bureau calculates the average cost of a dinner for 10, which would include such standards as turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberries.
