| FEELING THE SQUEEZE BECAUSE OF RISING OIL PRICES
Petroleum based fabrics (like polyester)
used in clothes, bandages, rain gear,
life jackets and pantyhose could cost more.
Diapers, infant seats and strollers are among
products using plastics and plastics makes
use natural gas as both an ingredient and
Petrochemicals are in everything from
blenders, cameras, CD, DVD players,
digital clocks and even piano keys.
Toy makers are already warning next
year's holiday season will cost more because
of today's oil and antural gas prices.
