WAUSAU (WAOW)--If you aren't planning ahead, your Thanksgiving dinner may be lacking a staple dish, homemade pumpkin pie. Local grocery stores are experiencing a shortage of canned pumpkin. 

If you can find a can, you may be dishing out a little extra this year. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says the pumpkin pie filling is about 13-cents higher than in 2008.

Newsline 9's Elizabeth Fay spoke with store managers to find that some stores are completely out of stock and others are rationing them. She'll have those details as well as what caused the shortage coming up at 5pm, 6pm and 10pm.
