Poll: Dealing with price increases

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Somewhere down the line, prices will increase, whether from inflation, increases in supply and demand or a number of other factors.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Every business owner knows that, somewhere down the line, costs are going to go up, whether from inflation, increases in supply and demand or a number of other factors.
