Holy Guacamole! Shortage on Super Bowl

Super Bowl fans may have to skip the guacamole this year.

A fuel shortage in Mexico has begun to hamper transportation in Mexico and harvested avocados.

The U.S. relies on Mexican producers to ship thousands of tons of avocado in early February every year to feed hungry fans watching the champion football game.

A spokesman for the business association that represents Mexican avocado producers and exporters, Ramon Paz, said, "We have from now to January 24, 25 to ship all that volume.

If we don't ship it (by then), we can't do so later." Behind the week-long fuel shortage: leftist President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's crack down on fuel theft.

SOUNDBITE: MEXICAN PRESIDENT, ANDRES MANUEL LOPEZ OBRADOR (ENGLISH OVER SPANISH) SAYING: "The supply will go back to normal, and at the same time, we're going to ensure that no one robs fuel." He says the offensive is yielding good results.

But that may not yield enough of the green fruit in time for Super Bowl Sunday.
