Costly times The world seems to be in the mood for change and nothing is going to
Finding a positive is tough these days as we all make the same amount of
money but it just doesn’t go as far anymore. Just when everything seems to
be getting worked out another problem jumps up to slow life down again.
So now what will the new prices and issues overseas do to your life.
Gas, as I am sure we all have seen, has taken another massive jump and
with rumors of prices going as high as $1.50 before the end of the summer
driving any distance will become a chore.
Leaving or more importantly getting to the Columbia Valley will not be as
economically friendly as before. Also in the same area is the cost of food.
Basics such as bread and milk could start seeing massive hikes in price.
To say a dollar does not go as far as it once did is the understatement
of the century right now. Being careful with how you spend your cash is
becoming the great challenge this year. I find myself living off of sale items
and keeping an eye out for coupons not because you want to but more
because you must. As the issues surrounding money flow down people will
have less to spend and that hurts everyone in the long run. In an area
where the economy is influenced by tourism the concerns should be that
much higher. People can believe that what happens half way around the
world has no effect on their lives. That however is nothing more than a
myth in a globally connected society of the 21st century.
