POLL: Will You Pay More For Starbucks?

The coffee chain just upped their prices. Will you remain a customer?

Starbucks coffee drinks are already known for being expensive, but the Seattle-based chain said this week that they are raising the price of some of their drinks, the Huffington Post reports.

The average increase is just one percent, and the price-hikes will only happen in stores in the Sunbelt and the Northeast U.S.

"Starbucks wouldn’t disclose all of the states its raising prices, but the regions include New York; Washington, D.C.; and most Southern states," according to the Washington Post. "They exclude California and Florida."

The price of a "tall" coffee will go up 10 cents, and six other beverages will become more expensive as well.

Will the price jump change where you buy your java? Take our poll and let us know!

I've worked my habit down to only occasionally, so its not that big a deal. However, if you combine this with the 5 cent bag tax, I mean, it all adds up.....tough to live around here!

I often wonder. How many of those complaining about the bag fee, or the increase in coffee price, are smokers? A pack or more per day times 365 days would likely amount to more than $1,000.00. Enough said!
