Automobiles, gasoline, television sew, hats, floor tiles—one or. more manufacturers in these fields have raised prices this week. "And the parade of higher prices continues In fields that consumers encounter only indirectly and later on after the boosts raise production costs —electric transformers, oil field equipment, bleached sulphite pulp, nickel-chromium alloys. Testing time will come when the consumer reacts. Manufacturers argue that prices must go up because the cost of labor and industrial material materials have gone up. .Retailers argue that one of the chief seasons for the booming demand for consumer goods has been price paring that offered the public bargains—that the demand could shrivel under the frost of higher prices this rail. The consumer's first interest is likely to be in • the higher price tags on the 1956 model cars. Ford is taking the first step. Its new Fords will be higher by from $46 to 399. Its Lincolns already have been raised. More Expected Others in the indostry haven't announced yet. But many expect price hikes of roughly 5 per cent. Socony Mobil Oil Co. is raising the wholesale price of gasoline a half cent a gallon in 11 Eastern States. The Hat Corp. of America and the John B. Stetson Co. are raising prices on some of their hat lines — although not all. This follows the doubling of prices of hatter's fur in world markets because of a shortage. But Eoms o( the price news ttvis week makes good rending: for the consumer. Heavy supplies of meat pouring into Midwest markets have been lowering wholesale prices there. The Agriculture Department esti- . males that the meat .supply is currently H per cent greater than a year ago. Read Courier News Classified Ads.
