EL PASO - It looks like that holiday pecan pie may be pricier this holiday season.

Experts said the average price for a pound of pecans is up about $2 since last year. The price increase is blamed on the weather; recent drought conditions and a brutal winter.

The entire U.S. pecan crop is expected to be 14 percent smaller than last year.
