auto maintenance

Y'know, I didn't mind it too much when oil changes went from fourteen to twenty-one bucks. But now I'm seeing Fifty-Nine bucks pretty often. Who decided they could suddenly get by with this little bit of highway robbery?  I'm suspecting the New-car dealers of leading the charge on this one. They usually operate under the principle of "If you can't get 'em one way, then fleece 'em another ! Remember about six or seven years ago when car batteries suddenly went from sixty or seventy bucks to a hundred and fifty-like OVERNIGHT ?? I think someone in the car biz periodically says; "Hey, let's triple the price on this, and see if  the rubes hold still for it !"
