    NEW YORK — The Wall Street Journal has surpassed USA Today as the top-selling daily newspaper in the United States.

    The Associated Press: Wall Street Journal surpasses USA Today as No. 1

    The Audit Bureau of Circulations won't be releasing its latest figures until Oct. 26, but the Journal said Wednesday that it gained about 12,000 subscribers in the April-September period, compared with a year earlier. That puts its average Monday-Friday circulation at 2.02 million.
    The Journal claimed the top spot last week after USA Today released its circulation figures early, but had not given out specifics until Wednesday.

    and:

    For the most part, however, the Journal's new status as No. 1 is the result of a steep decline at USA ....
    USA Today, which hiked its price on newsstands last December to $1 from 75 cents, sold about 398,000 fewer copies in the April-September period compared with the year before.

    I subscribe to both print and online service. I think it was around $100, well worth it.

    Very interesting. WSJ is helped by the fact they're immune from a lot of problems facing the broader industry.

    Excluding the Financial Times, it's the only paper that's also a trade publication of sorts.
