Some politicians say the economy is improving. Others say it is not. Can you really believe anything you hear from them during an election year?

(In the spirit of full disclosure, even the media can be biased on the subject.)

Tire dealers are not totally immune from the effects of a poor economy. Although people have to drive and get their cars repaired, they can hold off on spending any money until they absolutely have to.

That seems to be what is going on for some dealers, even in higher income areas.
