Nationwide drought drives up pumpkin prices

Dry, hot weather has hurt crops across the nation. Farmers said expect pumpkins to be in short supply and cost more this season.

Extreme weather wiped out many and retail prices could jump up 30 percent.

While the drought drives up the cost of growing pumpkins, it will likely cut into sellers' profits as well.
