The price of weekday and Saturday editions of The Star will be 75 cents, up from 50 cents. It's the first increase in the single-copy price in 18 years, according to the newspaper's circulation director, Dennis Dunn.
Dunn said the increase is necessary to account for the increased cost in newsprint since the paper's last price increase in March 1991.
The price of Sunday editions will remain at $1.50. Home delivery prices also will not change. The basic home delivery rate is $13.50 per month, 48 percent of what it would cost to buy a paper every day.
