CYBERSPACE (AP) - Pleasing that "true love" is going to be a slightly more expensive proposition this year - if you plan to use to the "Twelve Days of Christmas" formula. PNC Wealth Management
has totaled up the cost of gifting a loved one with everything from the partridge in a pear tree to the 12 drummers drumming. The cost would be $87,403, up from $86,609 last year. The big reason for the increase: the price of gold. That drives up the cost of five gold rings from $150 to $500.
