Steel and aluminum prices have increased due to trump's trade war antics. When will the price increases show up in Teslas and other cars? I could see Detroit and others doing it for the 2019 models this September. I hope Elon will put it on the sticker as a separate "metal price adjustment" (or trump tariff surcharge) like the airlines did when fuel costs spiked. A reason the $35,000 Model 3 probably won't be sold for $35,000.
