Prices are going up for a wide variety of products and services this fall, from airfare to bacon. Here's a look at 10 price hikes you'll likely notice the most, according to CBS MoneyWatch.
10. Buying a home
Homebuyers could get hit with a double-whammy of higher home prices and higher interest rates this fall.
Chicken had been a cheaper alternative as beef and pork prices rose earlier this year. But now poultry prices are on the increase. One reason is fertility problems with a rooster breed in the U.S. due to a genetic issue, lowering chicken populations already on the decline.
8. School supplies
Parents with kids in grades K-12 say they will spend an average of $669.28 on clothes, supplies and electronics, up 5 percent from last year, according to a survey from the National Retail Federation.
The average roundtrip air ticket has risen to $509.15, according to The Associated Press. Why? Customers are paying more in airline fees, as well as higher Transportation Security Administration fees that took effect July 21.
6. Starbucks drinks
Higher coffee bean prices has forced Starbucks to raise prices in its U.S. cafes and stores. Dunkin' Brands is also recommending price hikes at its Dunkin' Donuts franchises in response to higher bean costs.
5. Electricity rates
Utilities across the country have either hiked electricity rates already or plan to do so this fall.
Buying candy for trick-or-treaters will cost more this year because of higher cocoa prices. Hershey hiked its chocolate prices in July by about 8 percent, and Mars is about to roll out a 7 percent hike of its own.
Back-to-school shopping usually involves a pair of jeans or two, and retailers know that. Most hike jean prices in the fall before lowering them closer to winter time.
The horror! Yes, meat prices are going up across the board, but rising bacon costs have hit baconphiles particularly hard. Bacon now costs $6.11 per pound, an all-time high, mostly due to a virus that killed 13 percent of the U.S. hog herd.
Kraft announced in July that it's raising prices on 50 percent of its products, including cheese and Oscar Meyer deli products. However, the cost of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is actually down compared to recent years.
