WBRZ Crawfish Index: boiled price per pound falls 20 cents
BATON ROUGE – The price for a pound of boiled crawfish fell 20 cents this week, dropping to the lowest point surveyed since the start of Lent.
According to the WBRZ Crawfish Price Index, the average price sits at $3.78 a pound. While most locations chose to keep last week’s price, Jones Creek Café in Denham Springs slashed prices by nearly $1.50 a pound.
Pit-N-Peel continues to have the cheapest price per pound among the surveyed locations. That location is continuing its deal for $2.79 a pound.
The average price is drawn from a survey of 10 locations submitted by WBRZ viewers through social media earlier this year. WBRZ’s Crawfish Price Index will be updated every Friday during Lent with new data.
The survey is intended to show how prices are changing over time rather than a complete record of every price in the Baton Rouge area.
