Editor’s Note: We’ve started covering price increases over the weekend and I made some reference to this on Twitter, but there will be a lot less January increases than last year. I’m not sure that 2013 will be without them, I honestly do think a portion of the companies indicating there won’t be any at this time will go onto announce something in the middle of the year, but that’s just an educated guess.
