Texas Gulf Coast Oysters sit on display at Groomer's Seafood on Aug. 1, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas. Add an oyster shortage on the Texas Gulf Coast to the problems exacerbated by the state's years-long drought. Texas' dry spell isn't the only reason the coastal delicacies are harder to come by lately.
