If you ain't nervous yet, you should be.
My power bill -- that's electricity -- doubled this summer. I'm expecting about the same for heating oil this winter.
I'm paying close to three dollars a gallon for gas.
Our grocery bill is up.
What isn't up? Paychecks. They're staying the same.
We've stopped going anywhere or doing anything. We are going to see Serenity this weekend, because we've been waiting for it all winter, but we don't plan to buy popcornor soda -- we're going to smuggle jellybeans into the theater with us. The cheap sort.
We're reduced to becoming movie outlaws. It's appalling.
