As of today, May 18, 2022, the price of gas is over $4.00 per gallon in every state of the U.S., with prices in states like New York and California way over $5.00.
Are you seeing a decrease in consumer driving? Do you think this will hurt the summer season when so many people plan road trips, that help auto repair shops with all the related services and repairs?
Lastly, what's your plan to help your customers, and also help you to maintain sales during the road trip, and vacation season?
Not sure if you know that my daughter Tracy joined our media company and quickly signed on to our purpose to Advance the Aftermarket. She has made a great impact and helped to create the Aftermarket Radio Network. I’ve been encouraging her to find her stride and do her own podcast episode. Well here it is and she shares with you a personal story at the Women In Auto Care Conference in the Spring of 2022. Together we’ve attended ASTE, AAPEX, Vision, the Big Event, and others but this experience, she shares with you, is her first solo event and podcast. Get to know Tracy and see how proud I am to have her join the Aftermarket's Premier Podcast. Many, I know, will relate to her story.

Back in the 1990s, some shop owner's feared that fuel injection, 100 mile spark plugs, the elimination of the Distributor cap, rotor and extended fluid services would be our demise. But, that didn't happen.
Now I hear many in our industry state that "There is no needed work on an electric vehicle, they are problem free."
My opinion, let's not fall into thinking that the EV car will run forever of even for years without needed service. The EV still has tires, suspension, brakes, and a whole new area of opportunities. It will be different, but there will be a need for the Automotive Technicians and for repair shops.
