Coffee chain Starbucks is once again increasing prices, this time in the Northeast and Sun Belt areas.

Predicting high prices for coffee, milk, and fuel this year, the chain is raising coffee prices by about one percent overall, Reuters reports.

In November, Starbucks raised prices in California and South Florida, explaining why those sunny areas are exempt from the price hike.
