If you’re planning on making guacamole for your Fourth of July barbecue, here’s some advice: Go buy your avocados NOW. Hoard them. Throw elbows at other people if you have to.
The California Avocado Commission says there could be a serious avocado shortage this weekend because a ridiculous heat wave last week destroyed a ton of crops.
You can also expect higher prices for a WHILE because of the shortage. The wholesale cost on avocados is already up 32% since last month.
