Updated. I'm now told the price increase would be effective on Monday, Dec. 8.
A tipster says Publisher Craig Moon has decided to move ahead with a 33% price increase, to $1, sometime in December: "This plan has been sitting on the table for a while, just waiting for Moon to pull the trigger." Any USAT move would follow 50% hikes at as many as 20 other Gannett papers, in August.
