Thanksgiving dinner may cost lest for Virginians this year.

By Matt McCleskey

A turkey dinner will cost Virginians a little less this Thanksgiving than in recent years.

The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation conducted the informal price survey of traditional Thanksgiving menu staples including turkey with dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, cranberries, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

The group says a typical Thanksgiving meal for ten adults will on average cost just under $44 this year, or about $4.37 per person. That's 3.5 percent less than last year's figure, and reverses a three-year trend of higher prices.

A market analyst with the farm bureau says increased competition among grocery stores is driving prices down.
