Don't know that I would be to optimistic about price increases with the economy in the tank and falling, layoffs happening across the board everyday. Taxes on the increase, and they will be.
Everyone isn't feeling the pain yet, but it's coming.
I'm not looking to turn this into a political/economic thread, but it certainly will affect prices. All of what's happening will have a trickle down affect until every sector is touched by it.
