PITTSBURGH — Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner released the results of her annual review of pricing within Pittsburgh International Airport and found that an increasing number of stores were charging more for similar products than comparable businesses outside the airport.

According to the report, 29 of the 45 businesses sampled within the airport were found to be offering at least one item at a price higher than an identical or substantially similar item at non-airport location, up from 26 businesses last year. About 22 percent of the 441 items that were sampled exceeded non-airport prices.
