These Things Will Cost You More In 2011

Posted: Updated:

Wouldn't you love to have a crystal ball to see how much things will cost next year?  DealNews.com is out with a list of 20 things that will be more expensive in 2011.  Here are a few of them:

  • Let's start with breakfast.  Grain prices have been skyrocketing, and that's going to have an effect on your morning cereal, milk, eggs and bacon.
  • Flying will cost more next year.  Airlines have made so much money with all those added fees, that they'll dream up others things to charge you extra.
  • You'll pay more for your chocolate craving and coffee fix.  Cocoa is at a 30 year high and demand is only growing.  Same for coffee.
  • The Postal Service's request to raise the price of a first-class stamp by 2 cents, to 46 cents, was shot down this year, but DealNews says don't bet on that ruling sticking around for very long.
  • And movie ticket prices go up every year, but 2011 could be a time of major increases for two key reasons: online streaming and 3D.
