WASHINGTON D.C.  (WKZO)  --    This year's Thanksgiving dinner costs a little bit more than last year.  John Anderson, an economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation says the total cost for a Turkey dinner for 10 with all the trimmings is $49.48.

That's up 28-cents from the year before.  The group tabulated the cost of turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pie and other traditional Thanksgiving fixings.

The largest increase in this year's survey of Thanksgiving costs comes from the rising price of turkey at about a dollar-39 a pound.
