Starbucks raises drink prices

Starbucks drinkers may have to pay more for their daily caffeine fix starting today.



Starbucks is increasing their prices by between 5 and 20 cents per drink.



Coffee bean prices have been going up, but a Starbucks spokesman says this latest increase is due to costs for ingredients, materials and labor.



Some residents say they simply can't live without it, while others say they already made sacrifices the last time prices were raised.



The price is going to go up even if you like to brew your own coffee at home. A bag of Starbucks beans will go up $1 starting in July.
