Why tire prices may be going up soon
Tire prices appear to be in a state of flux -- even more so than usual.
Because supply has been greater than demand, some tire manufacturers have reduced their prices, which is great news for tire dealers. Those who haven't are at least offering promotions that will help get customers into your stores.
Ahh, but "things" can change quickly. The price per barrel of crude oil went up on Aug. 23. And rubber prices may be ready to skyrocket.
