I am appalled at the recent, significant jump in gas prices! In California, the price of gasoline has risen to more than $4.00 a gallon! Obviously, this affects the price of everything else, your basic means of survival… food, clothing, and shelter.
And yes, I’ve especially noticed the rise in food prices, particularly organic produce. The soaring gas prices especially impact truckers, who transport the food to the marketplaces.
As you may know, I’ve been trying my best to live a more frugal lifestyle. But it looks like I’ll have to try even harder to save a dollar here, a dollar there… Being a working musician is truly a blessing and a unique lifestyle, but I’m not making a six figure salary just yet. So, I’ll need to be more creative with the budget, and keep a close eye on the pocketbook.
I think I’m ready for my “economic stimulus check” now.
