Exactly BigJoe, we have the highest unemployment rate in the state of NC and one of the highest in the nation at 13.5% but there are always jobs. Everyone just lets their pride get in the way and their "normal" cost of living. By the way, being that I work at a Weber dealer you are only allowed to discount a certain amount and if they raise list prices, they raise dealer cost, which raises the end buyer's price(in store). Also, if you can buy that Absaroka for $1,300.00 someone violated the Weber dealer agreement by $92.00 (going by the old list price before the price increase). I would suggest buying it.
