When a barrel of oil soars past $100, it affects all of us in more ways than just the gas pump. That counts for auto production as well, as Toyota's recent price increase clearly shows. And Toyota isn't alone, as Automotive News reports that Ford has raised prices on its vehicles by an average of .4 percent across its lineup. That adds up to about $117, which won't break the bank, but at the same won't make any of consumers' weary wallets any happier, either.

Ford has announced slightly smaller pricing for some of its 2008 Super Duty pickups. A 2008 F-250 Super Duty Regular Cab XL 4x2 will start at $23,305 ($150 less than a 2007), while the top end Crew Cab Lariat 4x4 before options will be $38,425 ($245 less).
