DealNews, which studies retail trends and tracks deals, released a report on items that will likely go up in price this year.

Here's what they predict:

If you're a fan of French wines, Bordeaux in particular, you will probably pay more for it this year. Bad weather in France caused a poor grape harvest, which is certain to lead to higher prices. 

Getting a meal at Chipotle will cost a bit more starting mid-year, due to the company shifting to more organic foods, such as cooking oil made from non-genetically-modified seeds. 

Stamps are going up again — by three cents. Starting January 26, first-class postage stamps will cost 49 cents each. Not to date myself here, but I remember them being around 20 cents at one time. 

If you usually bring your pets when you travel, take note of Southwest Airlines' new prices. Starting January 15, pet fees will go up from $75 to $95.
