Over the years the traditional thanksgiving feast has featured turkey as the primary entree. The price for putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table for 10 people is expected to rise slightly this year, clocking in at $49.41. That's 37 cents higher than in 2013. The good news is that a drop in fuel prices make it cheaper to drive to Grandma's house, but If you're traveling by train or air, you'll pay 2-percent more over last year.
