"US consumers reel at fuel hikes"
Consumer confidence has dropped, as exhibited by the .5% decrease in
August in overall consumer spending here in the US. Personal incomes
have fallen, while the price of gas has risen. And it isn't just fuel
prices that have folks worried as winter and cooler weather demands
heating. Household durables, automobiles, and larger more permenant or
long-term purchases and borrowing of monies have dropped
significantly. It is said that there are recovery efforts in place for
the economy in 06.
I will believe it when I see it. I'll believe it when I can stop
digging for pennies in hiding. I'll believe it when gas prices stay
beneath $2 mark for an appreciatable amount of time.
I'll believe it if we get someone else in office. Perhaps, a bunch of some body elses.
