Product Hit Hard By the Drought

It may come as a surprise, but the product hardest hit by the drought right now is honey.

Honey is usually a huge money maker, but because of the drought, less is stocking the shelves this season.

Experts say when it's dry, nothing blooms. When that happens, pollen isn't made and nectar isn't produced.

For the consumer, that means much higher prices could be coming to a shelf near you.
