OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The price of Girl Scout cookies is going up in Nebraska next year, but will still be cheaper than the $5 that will be charged in some other places.

The Girl Scouts of Nebraska said in a news release that cookies will cost $4 a box when they go on sale in the state on Feb. 5. That’s an increase of 50 cents per box. The organization says it’s the first time in more than 12 years that the price of the iconic cookies has increased in Nebraska.

The price is determined individually by each of 112 local Girl Scout councils. While some areas will see prices as high as $5 per box, others will see no change in price.
