I wonder if the banks that gave loans to breweries, wineries, and distilleries have anything to say about this as these businesses are their temporary partners.
As a consumer, nobody wants more expensive anything.
People can't spend what they don't have.
When price point is the final decision for making anything, quality often suffers most.
Will NM try to tax sailboat fuel next? ;)
