No matter what becomes of Pennsylvania’s embattled Liquor Control Board — in the latest go ‘round it seems it’s not going anywhere anytime soon — it appears that it will ultimately get the last laugh. This year anyway. Seems the board is going to decide today whether or not to raise prices on as many as 450 products it sells. The price hike is due to higher prices put on bottles from about four dozen wine and liquor vendors that the booze agency deals with, according to Action News. Should the increases get pushed through, the LCB will be looking at an additional five million dollars in revenue next year. Not too shabby for an organization that was all but destined for doom most of this year. [Action News]
