Thirsty? Get ready to pay more for bottled water
SEATTLE -- When it’s this hot outside, you keep hearing that you have to stay hydrated. But buying a bottle of water is going to cost you more now. Starting yesterday, August 1, people across the state now have to pay sales tax on bottled water. That hasn’t happened since 2010. “It’s hot today so we’re about to go golfing and I thought we should bring some water,” said Seattle resident Willy.
