Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Bad news for parents - back-to-school shopping is going to cost you more this year.

Huntington National Bank's annual backpack index shows prices jumped an average 7.3% this year.

Almost every basic item costs more than last year, some by as much as $10.

Post-It Notes and scissors are up $4, a three-hole punch is up $7, and a graphing calculator will cost you $10 more.
