Default Price of tires going up?

Ive been monitering BFG KM2's for about two months now and on tire rack they went from 180 to 212 and on another they went from 150 to 175. Is it just the sites or are tire prices overall going up?

yes, when the price of oil goes up so does the price of tires, alot like gas, tires dont come down in price when oil does for some reason...

Shits insane. So is gas supposed to continue to go up the next couple months? If so I may just order my tires next check instead of waiting till June.
