Starbucks said Tuesday it is raising some prices regionally as it faces rising ingredient costs.
If Starbucks chief Howard Schultz wants voters to withhold campaign cash from federal politicians, he may need to start with trying to halt the flow of donations coming from the people who work for him.
A band of frigid weather snaking its way up the East Coast on Sunday was forecast to spare the Washington area a major snowfall, but the storm was on track to bring blizzard conditions and at least a foot of snow to New York and New England.
Starbucks spokesman Jim Olson says the prices reflect competition in certain markets and higher costs for coffee, fuel and other commodities.
"Howard's pledge was a personal request, not a company initiative," Mr. Olson said.
