Before today -- the start of the 2010 Legislature -- a can of Coca Cola Cherry Zero in the vending machines located in the basement of the State Capitol was 85 cents.  Today:  $1.

A bag of Earl's Popcorn Supreme was $1 before today.  Today: $1.25.

The good news:  If things go according to form, the prices will drop as soon as the Legislature adjourns in May.
