Gas Prices are Rising Again
As we all may observe the gas prices have risen again, and that means that other things may become more expensive as well. Groceries have already becoming expensive, but now that it cost more to ship goods price adjustments wil need to be made. Actually sometimes I think the idea of price increases in gas also gives business a good excuse to raise gas prices. At the beginning of fall semester this last year I went to Little Ceasers and inquired why their 5 dollar pizza can only come with cheese and pepperoni and any additional topping was a dollar more. The girl at the counter remarked by stating it was the rise in gas prices. Well dang, they might as well start asking 3 dollars extra to add cheese to bread, and 3 extra dollars to add sauce. However, though that may be an extreme example of a girl that was told to answer a common asked question to make sence to the consumer, I think that a lot of unofficial additions are added to the propositions out of the excuse of rise in gas prices. Cedar has been fortunate thus far. Comparing the prices in the nation, Cedar's prices are on the lower end of the spectrum. For regular unleaded oil, the West Coast is looking at an average of $2.228 per gallon. How do you think that this rise in the price of gas is going to effect consumer spending? This rise will even be larger in the later spring and summer. Do you think that it will effect trips people plan on taking this summer?
