I know I normally post recipes, but I just had to give my two cents worth on the rising cost of gas and food.
With gas prices rising, so are our food costs. It is getting to where people are having to choose between putting gas in their car, or eating. That is really sad, and something really needs to be done soon.
Imagine a single parent raising children on their own. Some only make minimum wage, have to pay a baby sitter, put gas in their car to get to work, and put food on the table. For many that is becoming a overwhelming task. Also anyone living on a low fixed income.
I think we are going to start seeing a lot more gas theft, people standing in front of gas stations asking for gas or money, more people turning to food stamps, and welfare, because they just can't make it on what they recieve monthly. There is just too much month at the end of the money for a lot of people. How is the higher price of gas helping anyone?
I would love to hear comments on this issue. You opinions would be greatly appreciated.
