I guess you haven't seen the cost of Natural Gas as of late. I think it close at $14.xx today down from a high of $15.3x. Last year it was only $6.80. Gas went up but is coming back down now but home heating oil and natural gas are up 50% to 100% already and winter hasn't even started. A lot more prices are going to go up to pass on the transportation and winter heating costs.

sowwies Adam blame the hurricanes. :(

Don't be surprized if the cost of new bikes and cages begins to skyrocket soon. Energy costs doubling from where they were 2 years ago, Aluminum and Copper being hoarded by China... The increase in Copper has cost my company 2 plant closings and almost 300 jobs from the 4 plants still open. Three years ago we were worried when copper passed the $.75 per pound line. Now it around $2.08. When we use 50+ tons a week of bronze "A metal" ingot, these rising prices are killing us.

Keep in mind, an average car uses around 230 pounds of copper. I'm going to take a SWAG and say there may be as much as 30 pounds in a full dresser bike, perhaps 10 or 15 in a sportbike. Now factor in the energy required to build the vehicles, ship the parts and completed units, heat the buildings, so on and so forth. I doubt prices will drop soon.
