You're mistaken. Price gouging happens often here because of the oil fields. Also, travel for a better price if you want one.

There's many ways to qualify for X-plan pricing. Here's one everybody can qualify for: shareholders who have held 100 shares for 6+ months qualify for 1 x-plan pin/year. Ford shares are hovering at about $9/share. X-plan takes $1800 off msrp for a ST with ST3 package and no other options. That's a $900 savings and if you sit on the stocks long enough they're likely to eventually go up in value (although they're going down right now due to recalls, weak European market and a decrease in US sales). But anyhow, yes you regular folk are eligible for x-plan pricing.
