It might not be long before a single avocado costs at least $2 at the supermarket.
Due to the extreme heat in California last summer after already-damaging years of drought, there's a shortfall in avo production—and that means prices are jumping higher than your go-to fitness move. A Sacramento-based wholesaler says at this time last year, he could buy a box of 60 avocados for less than $60, and as low as in the $40 range. Now the same amount costs $80—or $1.33 a piece, up from between 80 and 98 cents.
According to the Los Angeles Times, that means it might not be long before a single avocado costs at least $2 at the supermarket.
