excellent article...I am worried

What do we go as individuals to change this situation? Are you feeling a crunch personally as the prices for groceries and fuel rise? Do you worry about this?

I wonder where we are headed in the US. Yesterday I was driving and it appears the gas prices have shot up 40 cents in the last week. Today I need to go grocery shopping and I am putting it off. I am not even close to any of the things outlined in this article but I am worried what the future holds. I wonder what I can do to make a difference.

What about you?

I personally feel I have very little control over this, and it would take more time, money, and energy than I am willing to expend to make my voice heard.

So no, I choose not to worry about it. I have to buy gas, I have to buy groceries, and I have not changed my habits to save money in these two areas. Just my opinion. :)

I figured that with my car, it's about 15 cents a mile for me to drive and I live less than a mile from work.
I do worry because it doesn't seem to be getting any better.

The Economy

Note that this is not a political comment or an Anti-Bush posting but I saw a bumper sticker that literally stopped me cold.. It said "Gas was $1.49 a gallon when Bush 1st went into office.."

I mean, you realize the pain when you fill up at the station but in that context, to see how quickly it has skyrocketed in comparison to inflation, its mind boggling.. And frightening..

I looked that up on the computer not too long ago and that is correct. And have you heard of which companies this year made the most profits. I don't remember the actual numbers but those companies in the top 3 are oil companies. Doubling the profits of Wal Mart and some other major organizations scary. So why the gas hikes if they are just doing it for profits?

grocery delivery

I feel very good about using a grocery delivery service for a lot of reasons and one of which is definitely the fact that one person delivering everyone's groceries keeps all those cars off the road for that errand! It's like all their client's carpooling to the grocery store!

this is also not nearly as expensive as one might think - if I order over $35 dollars worth of produce the delivery is free! the individual item prices vary and I find some things very expensive and others not ... Having fresh produce arrive on your doorstep each week really promotes healthy eating in our family too! we have salad with dinner daily ...

I think eventually in shopping for things like this, online ordering and delivery will become the norm.
