Gas Prices Affect Cost of Christmas Tree

High gas prices will now be affecting the price you pay for Christmas trees.

Fuel costs drove prices up about 10 percent over last year for the nearly 40-thousand trees sold Tuesday at a Christmas tree auction in Pennsylvania.

Not only will the trees cost more, some auction officials say you can also expect more shedding of needles due to the extended and dry fall season.
