      Fiscal cliff warning: milk prices increase

      WASHINGTON (AP) - The dairy industry could get wrapped up in the fiscal cliff deal-making.

      That's because the price of milk could double. If Congress doesn't provide a fix for expiring dairy price supports before Jan. 1, milk-drinking families could feel the pinch.

      One scenario is to attach a farm bill extension to the fiscal cliff legislation - if a compromise is reached in time.
