Thanksgiving dinner may not cost you as much this year.

The American Farm Bureau Federation is out with its annual price survey of a turkey day meal. This year, a feast for a family of 10 is expected to cost, on average, $49.04.

That's about 44 cents less than last year's average.

The estimate includes classic thanksgiving foods, including turkey, stuffing and cranberries.
