Today it happened - $4.15 gasoline in Columbus, OH. Most things don't bother me much, but $4 gas hit me in the pit of my stomach. Last night, I had contemplated filling up at $3.74. Overnight, prices increased by 10%. Said another way, the value of the money in your pocket or your bank account decreased by about the same amount relative to gasoline – overnight. Ouch.
Without getting into the intricacies of economics, the dollar keeps losing value. It's been on a long-term slide since 1913 – with a few ups and downs along the way. Since the dollar will likely continue on its long-term downtrend for the rest of our lives, what can you do? About the only thing that you can do is earn more or spend less. Earning more sounds great, but that's harder to control. But who really wants to spend less? We need our expensive coffee, our gasoline and the right equipment. Oops.
Like you, I want to be properly equipped when it comes to audio, video, projection and lighting equipment. It's important.
I know, I know. So how will $4-a-gallon gas save you money?
Lots of people don't consider the costs of time and travel when they're buying gear. Some will drive an hour each way to talk with someone or to pick up new gear when all they have to do is to pick up the phone or order online, and wait for UPS, FedEx or the USPS to bring it to them.
When you call here, we pay for the phone call, we ship many orders at no additional cost, and you don't have to drive anywhere to talk to someone about getting the right solution. That's how we'll save you both time, and money.
If $4 gas has you down, stop driving and call us! We think that you'll be glad you did.
