LITTLE ROCK — It will cost families about $1 less to prepare the classic Thanksgiving meal this year, due largely to a decline in the average cost of frozen turkey and a gallon of whole milk. According to Arkansas Farm Bureau’s 30th annual survey, it will cost $45.25 for a family of 10, or $4.52 per person, to enjoy the feast. Last year’s average was $46.23.
