  1. while labor costs are sticky and remain high, aren't we beginning to see a dramatic decrease in commodities (lumber, gas, copper, etc.)?

  2. yes, but they're on the downtrend. lumber is now below what is was in February 2020. Your notion the commodity prices can't/won't come down is blatantly false as we are seeing it right now.

  3. Products that are sold competitively (ie through numerous sales channels) will see a race to the bottom with regards to pricing, like lumber. But for products that are more limited and complex, like air handlers, pricing will not fall so fast unless all manufacturers drop pricing. However, with air handlers for example, labor costs have increased and individual components increased. So there is no guarantee the cost will come down.

  4. As someone else mentioned on this thread, Kean Jr. is running in a new districted gerrymandered enough to lean right. So he is running basically on name recognition and doesn't have to do much campaigning. Would be great if we can force candidates into debate.

  13. "In its annual report 2022’s Best States to Live In, WalletHub factored in cost of living with job opportunities, quality of education and safety. The Garden State was second overall behind Massachusetts — though it was 48th in cost of living, just ahead of Hawaii and California. Mississippi ranked last overall in this year's study.

  14. NO! Widening roadways DOES NOT improve traffic flow. We need to get folks out of cars and into trains and busses. Invest in NJ transit.
