I don't think it is all greed on thatsdax's part.
The dollar just is not worth as much any more.
I expect as the old kits from other suppliers get replaced the prices will rise there as well.
I pull into the easiest to use gas station. The price is $3.95 per gallon. As I am filling up the price goes to $ 4.09 per gallon.
every ones prices are rising. still i think they are very reasonable in price. just figure out how many miles you can use it for errands or for commuting to work and they pay for themselves real quick. i just bought a titan and my estimates is it will pay for itself in a few months down here. its a small island and gas is only 3.37 a gallon here but every day i take a trip exploring in the car and on the motorized bicycle it will be a whole new experience and i will see things i never saw before. yesterday i put a hundred miles on the car and the island is only 28 miles long and 8 miles wide at the widest point
In 1980 I was between wives so shopping for my own groceries. Jimmy Carter was president then. I was in the store with a buggy full of food. I picked up a loaf of bread and before I could move the cart, an employee with a label cum picked it up from my buggy and raised the price a nickel. Now that is run away inflation.
