That is my question 151515
Probably wrong in thinking this, but I would wager that gas is one of those commodities that will always fluctuate in price— it’s basically a chief barometer as far as economic health in the States is concerned.
To my knowledge, food usually doesn’t get cheaper once the prices go up.
I dunno, never seen it happen, but I am probably wrong.
They might have items “on sale” every now and then, but those sale prices are typically the original price of said item— so not really a good deal.
Also, you gotta factor in “shrinkanomics”— which is essentially when product size gets smaller but the price rises.
That victory garden and biodiesel Benz gets more appealing every year .
The tax on food in my county went up to 10%. A dollar drink costs me 1.10. It’s really gougey.
Haven’t checked recently, but last I saw, Arizona Iced Teas were still .99 .
Short answer: No.
Longer answer: Hell no.
No - its a separate supply chain.
I’m completely guessing.
Step 1 sell lawn mower
Step 2 buy donkey with lawn mower money
Step 3 donkey eat grass
Step 4 drive donkey instead of car
Now that’s thinkin!
Lower gas prices mean lower transportation costs. It should lower the price of everything.
Yes, but what about lower donkey cost?
Haha, I guess grass doesn’t need transported. Is that what donkeys eat? We’ve got plenty where I’m from.
It should. I remember when inflation was really wild back in the 80s. Prices stopped going up at a certain point, but they didn’t go back down. Profit taking by the large companies.
Yep, one should figure it would be like that.
50¢ off gas won’t change labor costs, its just one factor. Im sure even airlines will continue their price hikes to make up for all the labor issues and canceled flights and ticket and hotel reimbursements. The moving parts in the economy are all still haywire.
Yeah the company that makes those is kind of an exception, I saw a news story about it, they’re one of the few companies who are committed to not raising prices.
I think food prices will eventually go down but it may take some time
Once a company finds they can charge higher prices they don’t lower them.
