Orange You Sad About Orange and Orange Juice Prices? [Poll]

I LOVE drinking orange juice and I totally enjoy eating oranges, but that sweet fruit and nectar that comes (mostly) from Florida and Brazil is getting super pricey!  Why?  It all comes down to environmental factors: climate and disease.

Cold winter hurt the Florida orange crop this year and disease struck simultaneously, stunting orange growth.  In Brazil has been experiencing one of the worst droughts in history.  The damage won’t be able to be fully assessed until July when harvesting begins.

The result of all of this?  HIGH prices on oranges and orange juice.  So with the average price per gallon of orange juice in the U.S. already over $6, will higher prices prevent you from buying orange juice?
