No wonder inflation isn't slowing down. If car dealers charge whatever they can.

A little story. My daughter and SIL live in S.C. A few weeks ago their house was hit by lightning followed by fire. There will be a little salvaged but not much. Luckily they were away and had their kitties with them, so they were all physically safe. Unfortunately like I said their house is almost a complete loss. Included in the total loss were their car and a truck in the garage and were also a total loss. They have the go ahead so far from the insurance on one of the vehicles to replace it while they are trying to work with the bank on the other to clear the title or something. Anyway, SIL goes to a Ford dealer and explains his situation and that he needs wheels and the dealer says, that's too bad. How about 12k over MSRP instead of our usual 15k? Uh, no. He goes to a Jeep dealer and gets a much better deal. The truck dealers keep hiking the prices and getting them while the yahoos complain about the price of gas and blame Biden for it.
