Decided to go to Lowe’s for a pressure washer some other things. I needed a new cover for my Weber and some Dura flame logs.
The grill cover , Weber brand was just over $100, I swear when I bought my last one it was $59. I bought a generic for just over $50 and it seems the material is as good as the Weber brand, and it fits.
Dura flame logs were available in packs of six for $19. I believe when I bought them the last two years they were 8 in the box and the price was $15. That’s a 69% increase.
The Democrats own this with their disastrous policies .

Btw the pressure washer was an order only item . It was $199. I couldn’t tell you what it was two years ago. The model I ordered was a electric craftsman 2100 psi model.

Thank you for supporting the Biden economy.

Yes. It is the Biden economy.
You own a business you know how it is when you need to replace “stuff.”. That stuff that lasts a few years . In recent history I didn’t see price increases in those types of items.
The Weber grill I own is now $1349. I paid $1000 about 5 years ago, now that was a fair jump from $800 the prior year. But now? Big jump again in a short period of time.

You should have purchased less bullets. ;)

Weber grills have increased in price significantly.
When people get free money those are the types of things they buy.

I have a Spirit 2 NG. I don't grill too much, but it's a great grill.

I still use my Weber 310 from 2009. Looks fantastic, however, I keep it in a shed when not grilling. I think I paid around $650.
There was a few price hikes over the years but just recently it’s spiked again . I think I have a lot of life left in this one, but I remember prices like you paid.
