Walmart's pricing on soda has been making news lately largely because anything to do with Walmart and pricing makes news. When the largest retailer in the world slashes prices on a household staple, or starts to raise them, then pretty much everyone listens.

Prices of soft drinks have been hovering around $5 for a 24-can pack at Walmart since Memorial Day, when the retailer started getting aggressive with pricing in the category, including Coca Cola and Pepsi products. But according to reports, Walmart has begun raising prices to $6 for the same size soda pack in some markets. Could this be a trend or is it much ado about nothing?
