You may think twice about adding one traditional item to your Thanksgiving meal this year. 

Pecan Grove in Sahuarita, ArizonaThe price of pecans continues to go up. The price of a bag of pecans is now 11-dollars.  It’s gone up one dollar every year since 2008.  Pecan growers say there are several reasons, demand from China and a record drought in large pecan producing states- like Texas.  As a result, the U.S. crop this year will drop 14-percent compared to last year.
