Expect Savings On Thanksgiving Dinner

Sarah_Ackerman /

You will see savings this year on Thanksgiving dinner.  An American Farm Bureau Marketbasket survey estimates it will cost $43.27 on average in Louisiana.  Farm Bureau Federation News Director Neil Melancon says a large inventory of turkeys are helping to drive prices down.

That is over three-dollars cheaper than 2016 for a 16-item meal including turkey and all the trimmings. Melancon says since turkey prices are very low right now, he recommends to shop around and compare.

Melancon says we are paying less for other items, some which are grown locally.
