I went shopping for groceries this morning. What a
horrible experience. $100 dollars went no where. My budget in stretched
tight and I cannot buy name brand stuff and expensive cuts of meats. I
honestly do not see how people that have lower incomes can buy
anything. Milk is $5 a gallon, eggs $1.75, a loaf of bread is $2.50.
Every time I go to the store I feel as if I have been violated. Where
does it end? I hear people saying well I guess I will lose weight now.
I don't think so. The price of junk food is not going up as fast as
food that is good for you. That is something else. Why is organic food
so high? They do not have the expense of fertilizers and pesticides.
Angus beef is something else I have a problem with. It really does not
taste any different then any other beef.
Gas is $3.69 cents here today. We now pay more a month for gas than we do on our house payments. Where will it end? Never. Some friends of mine are taking their son on a cross country trip this summer. I asked them how could they consider it with gas so high. The answer was that when their son is old enough to do ithis own on he will not be able to. Can you imagine what the price of gas will be 10 -20 years from now?
I don't know, I just don't know.
