you bet ...
i WAS around ...!
still , it amazing to see how quickly the price can go up. i agree that the manufacturers are hard out to keep up . i also believe their is a danger in people paying way too much for some items , guns , gasoline , food or ?
AND like gas , it never quites come down to really reasonable levels again !
just look at the price at the pump ...... people get to see a price that is way too much to start , then when the gas does level off a bit , they think they are getting a bargain . all because not enough folks would restrict their consumpution when it was $4.00 a gallon when it should have been a lot less.... now $3.50 seems to be a fair price !
