do all bike dealers sell for retail when it oomes to low end bikes?

i was kind of surprised when looking around for my bike. all the nearest dealers were charging msrp. i thought about driving out farther to see if i could do better but decided not to with the way gas is and i do value my time. im sure the high end bikes are somewhat flexible as far as price since there has to be lots of profit margin, but it was kind of weird to see a bike shop owner not budge much on their bottom line bikes. In the end I got a free frame pump and bottle cage with water bottle but I still paid msrp. and this was for an 07 model...im talking about current model bikes. i don't know if this has to do with the time of year (warm here in the south) and/or my location.
