Prices Expected to go up on many Items in Geneva, Alabama
There are a few things that are coalescing into a perfect financial storm right now that will likely lead to higher prices on consumer goods in Alabama. These price hikes are expected to hit small towns in like Geneva, Alabama hardest:
- 6 cent per gallon gasoline fuel tax (goes into effect Sept 1, 2019)
- President Trump’s tariff’s on Chinese goods (goes into effect Sept 1, 2019)
- Hurricane Dorian expected to make landfall in US (Florida) on Tuesday
Hurricanes usually end up delaying parcel services and shipments like UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. Anything ordered on Amazon or through a normally reliable online version of a brick and mortar store could end up being delayed weeks or more. Hurricanes often cause scarcity so gas prices, lodging, restaurants … anything someone fleeing from a hurricane is likely to need.
Be safe yall!
