The Future

I hate it when that happens.

My best friend and I were talking the other day about looming price increases on our fuel consumption such as gas and diesel. Well, here’s what a former Shell Executive has to say – we may be seeing $6 to $8 per gallon of fuel on the horizon.

I have one question for each of us. How much money do you have left to spend at the end of your monthly budget?

To expand on this: Will you be able to afford to go to work every day now? How about your grocery bill? Bet we are all going on a forced diet, you think? How often will you be cutting your grass now? Probably have to do it yourself since you won’t be able to afford paying your lawn service, right? Home deliveries of food, drugs, newspapers, trash and recycle pickups – all those are going to increase in their bills left in your mailbox. No more going out to eat, no more going to the mall or movies. (And let’s face it, there will likely be a rash of additional bankruptcies and foreclosures right on the heels of all these cost increases.)

And let’s not forget our electric bills.

Thank the Administration, folks. For their short-sightedness and reactionary policies involving the latest fiasco.

This is going to hurt. Big time.
