Inflation and competition.

Everything is going up. I designed a 6.5' x 6.5' x 13" 304 stainless steel vent hood. Sheet metal shop is charging us $4,000 to build it, and only guaranteed that price for two days because of what metal prices have been doing lately.

On the flip side.. good excuse to go buy another bike! "Honey! It will cost 20% more in another year!"

I just read a report that most cars will have to go up 15-20 percent by the end of next year. I was planning to keep my 60,000-mile Mazda another couple of years, then look around for something like a Honda Fit Sport, but I may accelerate the purchase,
FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS for a range hood? My whole kitchen remodel didn't cost that much. Looks like it, too....

Making aluminum requires a huge amount of electricity. You know that electricity/power prices are going up, so the cost of aluminum will have to go up too. Heck, I'm scared to turn on the A/C in the house.
