Do Prices Go Up or Down During A Strike?


Recommended Posts

On one hand, inventory is temporarily limited to what's on hand.  On the other, it may make a sale a higher priority since there are lots of losses when stuff is shut down.

Is it a wash and the consumer won't find any real difference either way?

49,000 GM employees (UAW) went on strike today. The Teamsters union ( truck drivers) will support them and won’t deliver GM cars and trucks to market. 

The razor dude is axing the forum if prices on GM products will go up (demand/supply) or go down (demand/supply). 

My answer is that they won’t, relatively speaking. Labor issues rarely influence demand. Consumers expect the situation will resolve itself over time. There are no shortage of vehicles on the market. One supplier (GM) will have troubles but that will not save you the crap ton of money you may expect.

They aren't in demand now and dealers already have to much inventory.  So should bring prices down as GM doesn't have to pay for a furlough now, the UAW is doing it for free.

Who buys GM?

We buy the snot out of Silverados (sp. Silveradoes?)

And 100-150k later we buy the snot out of new transmissions for them.
