Probably material prices. Being in the automotive industry, I have seen material prices skyrocket in the last year.

well acording to my 00-07 focus catalog a set a speed bleeders were 5 and some change, the new catalog has them priced at 8 and some change. those things are about the size of a penny. im wondering if other companies are going to jump there prices as well. really im not mad or what ever, god knows that i can afford 5-30 more dollers for a part if im upgrading. no big deal. just wondered if anybody else noticed the prices jumping up.

More than likely jacking the price up because of the holidays and then in a few weeks you will get a new catalog that had the old prices and you think your getting a bargain.

Jumped up due to the weak dollar, I already emailed them about it two months ago.

It is called inflation. This happens. Look at the price of stuff 5 years ago. Things where a bit cheaper.

I say they're just adjusting their prices because fewer people are buying them. Cost/volume/profit analysis was re-worked

^^^ that makes scence. i think they just need to come out with somthing that nobody else has. look at there 65mm tb , why buy a 65mm when you can buy the cfm 67mm tb. now if they could make a 67mm tb that wasnt so touchy ( everyone says its touchy and hard to drive a mtx) then they would have me sold. but with companys that have bigger and better products out there , why would you buy less. steeda has a new production line beeing put in , in gorgia so we will see what they have to offer in a year or two.

there was a guy political analyst on the local news here and he said that the governments throwing money at this problem is the WOST thing that they could do. why?? because someone has to pay it back and guess who that will be you and me.

It's impossible to get out of debt too, because there more debt there is, the more money is printed, and printing money creates debt, so it's one hell of a vicious cycle :(
