INDIANAPOLIS — Here's Allison Gormly's What's the Deal consumer headlines for Thursday.

Automobile prices continue to rise

New vehicle prices jumped for a seventh straight month, hitting another all-time high in October. 

The price? A little over $46,000.

That's up about $5,200 from October last year.

Reasons include tight supply and demand for luxury vehicles, large SUVs and pickup trucks.

Instagram to offer break reminders

With mental health at the forefront, Instagram is testing a "take a break" feature.

The head of Instagram posted a video on Twitter with the announcement.

The Curly Fry Vodka is distilled with cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic, while the Crinkle Fry Vodka is made with kosher salt and sugar.

The price is $59.99.
