Just a wake-up call for all you guys who "can't charge that much in (your) area." We're all about to get hit with sticker shock and it could prove devastating. Just name one product that you couldn't work without that isn't tied to petroleum. Last week I ordered epoxy from my wholesale guy. He told me that prices were about to skyrocket. He said his epoxy is refined in China. As a result of President Trump's embargo, shipments were delayed. When Biden opened it up, cargo boats that were full of exports left but there was no room for the special "shelf life" items. Demands were so high that companies began air freight. Supplies that had once cost $4000 for a shipment were now running $80-$90,000. The items effected are not only epoxy, but most adhesives or adhesive bases, polymers, plastics, LIQUID FOAM. casting resins and paint particulates. The UPS driver warned me last week that the 30-50% fuel price increases will mean even higher shipping costs. Some of you might want to look for another side job if you haven't mirrored the economy in pricing your work.
