    Greed causes all prices to increase. For the last three years the government has sent me a letter saying there would be no increase in my retirement check because there was no increase in the cost of living, and yet just in food alone I'm paying more and more every year--not counting the increase in insurance costs, gas cost, utilities, rent, and pretty much everything else.

    Finally for the first time since 2008 I'm getting an increase in my check of a whole $6 per month. I think I'll go out and celebrate and buy myself a soda and candy bar. :smilewinkgrin:

    Hang in their brother the ride may be rough, but the reward is out of this world.

    Yes but this is all short lived. I think we will see 4 dollar a gallon this coming year.

    Agree. Price rises 20%, sales drop 10%. Price to low. Econ 101.
