Starbucks has announced it will be raising prices by an average of 1% on Tuesday in the Northeast and Sunbelt regions of the U.S. because coffee, milk and fuel could cut into profits this year.
Cities like New York, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Dallas and Albuquerque can expect prices for 12-ounce "tall" brewed coffees and latte drinks to go up by 10 cents.
We don't think that is a deal breaker for most people. However, we know somebody, somewhere is pretty pissed right now.

Holy shiz! It's a real life Slum Dog Millionaire!
27-year-old Sushil Kumar, who makes $120 a month and is from one of the poorest regions in India, the state of Bihar, was the first person to win the $1 million prize on the country's version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - after getting all of the questions correct!
In case this young man isn't inspirational enough for you, Kumar is using the prize to pay off debt and buy a new home for his family!
We'll Jai Ho to that!
Congratulations, Sir! You should be very proud of your wonderful, well-deserved accomplishment!
