Thanksgiving dinner will be slightly cheaper this year.
That's because most stores locked in their costs before the drought this year drove up feed prices.
Retail prices for frozen turkeys have barely moved. Frozen turkeys were selling for $1.62 a lb in September. That's up from $1.57 a lb at the same time two years ago.
In 2011, the nation ate about 5 billion lbs of turkey. That's almost 7 percent less than 2008.
