January 2022 Price Increase12/21/21
We here at Gasoline Alley strive to deliver quality parts and decals to our great customers as reasonably as possible. In fact our last price increase was way back in 2014. Since that time there have been many changes throughout the world that have affected our pricing. It seems that every step of the parts/decals production process have had increases at some or many places. Everything from basic raw materials (steel, rubber, plastic, vinyl) to shipping and logistics to packing materials have increased in cost. Many of them with rather large increases just within the past year. All of our parts and decals ship free within the US and what used to cost $3 for a padded mailer with a part are now shipping for $4 to $4.50 for that same exact piece. With that said, we will be increasing most of our parts and decal prices across the board to help compensate those added expenses. Many items will see maybe only a $0.25 increase while some that require larger boxes may see a bit more. Some of the newest items that we just unveiled will see no increase as we had already built in the added expense when those prices were set. We are in the process right now of updating the new pricing for our items on the website, in our Ebay store, and also the new 2022 print catalog. All of these increases will be finalized in early January but for now the old pricing is in effect until that time. Please know we appreciate all of your past and hopefully future business and will continue to do everything in our power to keep the costs as low as we possibly can.
