Most likely gross margin down due to fewer sales covering fixed costs

Generally speaking, gross margin refers to variable stuff - sales less cost of sales. All things being equal, it would indicate that costs of materials and labor is up while sale price is lagging behind. Perhaps unit prices are held down due to lower demand while costs keep marching on.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.
