I saw a bumper sticker today on a truck that said "Driver only carries $20 in ammo".

I thought "Is that supposed to scare me?"

But the quality of the wood is so much better this year, so its really not inflation.

True. Ammo is twice as expensive, but on the bright side, it's no less leathal.

Hate the prices; love the 2A.

I’ve got some boxes of American Eagle .22LR 400rd that’s bought when Obama took office and the stickers on them show $12.99. Same box costs $49.99 if you can find them today.

They act like prices are coming down because there’s been a market correction. No! We stopped buying it!

Not buying it IS the market correction. That’s how it’s supposed to be without govt subsidies and constant money printing anyway

Lumber futures tanked. For July delivery it’s 900 per 1000bf. 2x the 5y average of around $400.

I guess we’ll see. Give it a couple weeks to see if it keeps falling. My guess is somewhere around 6-700.

Prices are falling because contractors are walking away from projects if they have a contracted price and building owners are foregoing projects because it would cost so much to buy lumber.

I've got a friend who had to sue his contractor because the contractor wanted to charge them 200,000 dollars more for their house than the contract price because of lumber and other price hikes. That was last week. Go fuck yourself NYT.

“Do-it-yourselfers” spending stimulus checks” I could have thrown my phone when I read it.

The entire logging industry was shut down to manipulate prices. Fucking retards.

Lol "we jacked the price cause you wanted it", but now that you want it we've lowered the price.

So fucking stupid it would take some NYT nut job expert to suggest it.

Do it yourself people had fuckall to do with this artificial lumber inflation, there is no shortage, it's created by the commodities market.

We really need to punish newspapers who intentionally lie like that....it is so unethical it boggles the mind....

Has anyone seen retail prices fall? I haven’t. So far it’s lumber futures.

No one at the NY Times cares about the retail price of lumber. Only markets they can manipulate without getting their hands dirty.

I think it’s so their stooges like Shapiro will mouth off about it. “See guys, this wasn’t a thing”

A full sheet of 3/4” MDF costs $43 here in SoCal right now and a 3/4” sheet of birch faced plywood (not Baltic birch) is $68. Hardwood boards are probably 3x more expensive as they were just two years ago. I haven’t seen any drop in prices at all.

Price goes up 400% then drops a little over 10% then these morons act as though it is normal... Hey, reminds me, "you will own nothing and you will love it."

NYT is propaganda for the communist oligarchs.

Pipeline hacked, price jumps. Pipeline back up, price still up. Meatpacking facilities hacked, price jumps. Plants back up, price still up.

Remind me of all the price hikes on my water bill due to California drought yet when we get a few wet seasons, we never see a price reduction.

Inflation has more to do with printing trillions of dollars and creating 25% of all money in circulation in just the last year and a half.

RobHatmaker [S] 5 points ago +5 / -0

This. It all started when we came up with stimulus checks.....giving people money for not working.

Yeah no. I haven't seen any price fall. 5/8 drywall just went up another dollar from last week
