    Old news.

    And not surprising given the cost of oil (which means higher costs for manufacturing and shipping).

    Raising mid-single digits percentage wise. On a 12.99 deluxe, thats .64 cents more if it's 5%. Not sure if that is what they actually meant, but either way, going up a buck or 2 per item when the primary substance in the product is plastic, which is made using or from OIL, coupled with more strict saftey standards after the lead debacle, is not bad, not to mention the minimal price increases for the last 8 years.
