Bad news, Starbucks addicts of America. Your overpriced coffee just got slightly more overpriced.
--Starbucks is raising its prices by about 1% in various regions of the country . . . the Northeast, South, and Southwest are first . . . because of, quote, "high costs for things like coffee, milk, and fuel."
--1% doesn't sound like much, but look at it this way. If your $4 daily Starbucks now costs $4.04, that's almost $15 extra this year. Little things add up, ya know.
