I mean... If you can convince hundreds of millions of people to buy your product at such a high price and make so much off of it...why not make them pay MORE and make MORE from it?! Makes perfect sense.
*Bottled water prices Soar!*
*As does the price of snowglobes strangely...*
But you know what ? I saw on TV tonight that the car industry are just a few years away form cars that don't require gas and it's not a hybrid either. They are testing them already on the roads. Zero emission so they are also good for the environment.
