Here in South Africa we are now paying over 13 ZAR a liter for gas(we call it petrol).13 ZAR converts to 1.41 US$.I honestly can for the life of me
not understand how folks here can still afford to drive 4x4's and other gas-guzzlers.It has to be that those folks live on credit-because it's
certainly not especially wealthy people i'm referring to-just average people,not dirtpoor,not wealthy.We drive a Toyota Tazz-and the price of gas is
a major problem for us,and one of the main reasons we can never really go anywhere,except a trip to the provincial capital once a month.And my
province has the Kruger Park,as well as some interesting places,and of magnificent nature scenery,like around the Sabie+Hazyview areas.Its really
sad,but we have to try+buy the healthiest food we can,we have kids.Its a case of take the kids somewhere nice every weekend-and live on
bread+butter+we're lucky the occasional egg.Or have them eat a variety of healthy food,and basically sit around at home 99,99% of the time.
