Pennsylvania State Stores Raise Prices To Help Close Budget Gap

On Monday, you might notice a change at the register of your neighborhood Pennsylvania State Store.

421 products from the most popular brands will cost at least a dollar more per bottle. More than two dozen among those will go up between $2 and $100. The state however will not release a list.

This is the first price increase imposed by the LCB in almost 25 years. (Suppliers, of course, can always raise prices on their own.) The agency says it was necessary to maximize revenue; the increase is expected to kick in $185 million to the state’s general fund this fiscal year.

  1. THE democrat’s will never close the budget regardless of what prices they raise, but they will find more ways to waste what money they do get.
