I hope for the best for you an your family, Greenize. I agree that it is quite ridiculous that fuel prices are on the rise. I believe that was the
proverbial straw in the breaking of our economy's back, last year.
I know things were beginning to get tough, but, when fuel prices tripled, everyone's disposable income went straight to their cars' fuel tanks and
out the exhaust. They, then, had no money to buy 'stuff'. When people stop buying 'stuff', the economy comes to a screaching halt. That's what
happened to the automakers. People stopped buying cars. That's what happened to Circuit City. People stopped buying toys. I could be wrong, but it
seems kinda obvious to me.
I'm no economist, but, it seems we are being pushed deeper into the abyss, by the resurgence of fuel prices.
