Breakfast just got a little more expensive. Orange juice prices have hit two-year highs because the crop in Florida has been hit hard by the cold winter and by a fruit disease.
This year's crop is expected to yield the lowest harvest in 24 years.
The Department of Agriculture expects the 2013-2014 orange harvest at 110.0 million boxes, which is 18-percent less than last season's.
Florida's orange industry has 66-percent of the total U.S. market share. About 95-percent of the state's orange crop is used for juice.
