I think you people better worry about the gas prices. People are scared and they don't know how bad its gonna get. So these customers have to save for the worse. Everyone is looking at there pennies.Domino affect. Why can't they make weedwackers and blowers that run on batteries. Charge it while you drive to the next job. Or a small generator on your back pack blower. If they can make cars that run on batteries they can make weed wackers to run it to. If you worked for RedMax or Shindy wouldn't it be nice to make a bigger and faster CC motor they uses Gas and two stroke. Maintence = Money!! Moving parts break. Think about it. No more Sparkplugs, air filters, maintence, just like cars, oil, plugs, wires, coolant, headgaskets,transmission fluild, sensors, they make money off of accessories, I worked at a dealership thats how you make money and they make more money in accessories then in selling cars. Changing oil, scheduled maintence, etc. When people or a goverment find a niche to make money they milk it. Just like whatever is in demand bam it goes up. Everybody wants to make a quick buck. Sorry for my spelling im tired.When people loose there jobs there looking for new ones so it crams us. Technology is and will hurt us. More people + more technology = means more effcient, less jobs.emailing is hurting the post office. Internet is hurting CompUsa and other stores. Ebay, etc. There are two many people. Just like china. Rich people don't spend there money. KIDS HELP THE ECONOMY AND YOUNG ADULTS THAT ARE MIDDLE CLASS OR LOW, YOU KNOW WHY BECAUSE THEY SPEND MONEY, MOVIES, DRINKS, CLOTHES, TECHNOLOGY GADGETS, WAX, TOYS, MUSIC, AND SO ON. NOW THEY CANT AFFORD THIS AND THE RICH ARE JUST LAUGHING WITH MONEY IN THERE PANTS.
