Where do foam prices come from
by Tavy at Howard's on 03/19/11
People always ask me, why foam costs so much? Good Question. I wonder the same myself. Recently five furniture manufactureres in the southern United States have brought suit to foam manufactures claiming they are breaking anti-trust laws and price fixing. I haven't done that much research myself, however; I have been told the price of oil affects production, yet I wonder why when oil prices go up foam prices go up, but when oil prices go down, foam stays the same price. This question of foam prices for now remains a mystery to me. For now, all I can hope is that in the future, information of the goings on in the foam world will come to light, and make some sense.
