Toyota may raise prices to counter weak yen

As the dollar weakens, Americans are likely to pay more for goods imported from other countries. Thus, it is not surprising to learn that Toyota is mulling higher prices for autos it exports to the U.S. MarketWatch:

Toyota Motor Corp.  is considering raising the prices of some of its export models in the U.S. to counter the impact of the strong yen, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported in its Wednesday morning edition. The company may raise the prices of some of its 2012 export models–including the Prius hybrid, the Corolla and upscale Lexus models–which go on sale in the U.S. from next year, the report said. But to stop the move having an overly negative effect on sales, the automaker will raise prices by only a few percent, the report added.
