Yes, price increases in any budget puts a strain somewhere else. A budget is a fixed item with variables that fluctuate.

Yes. Making lifestyle changes now so won't be as much of a shock when we HAVE to.

Life is a matter of choices, we reap what we sow. It is a matter of living as citizens rather than consumers.

Combine oil prices which will continue to increase for many years to come with the falling U.S. dollar (everything imported more expensive), the housing crash, the falling stock market and rising food prices (from biofuels) and we may be approaching an economic perfect storm.

Prices where they are surely do not help make life any better. (Not sure.)

I don't think it will cause financial hardship, but we will continue to monitor spending closely to account for the higher prices

CERTAINTLY, WITH A INCOME UNDER 10K, EVERYTIME THE PRICE RISES I HAVE TO DECIDE WHERE THE $ GOES. 99% GOES TO BILLS. i WISHED THE PRICE WAS AROUND 2.25 SO ONCE IN AWHILE I COULD ENJOY GOING SOMEWHERE BESIDES THE DOCTORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEING DISABLED LIVING ON MY IRA UNTIL SSD COMES HOPEFULLY (BEEN JUST ABOUT 3 YEARS) & NO INSURANCE. IT'S A STRUGGLE MAKING IT, BETWEEN RX'S, TAXES & UTILITIES I'M TREADING WATYER KNEE DEEP. THANK GOD FOR THE FOOD DRIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'VE LOST ALMOST 50 POUNDS 5"10" 230 ON 1-1-07 TODAY7-23 188. IT'S A CHOICE BETWEEN RX's, BILLS OR FOOD, WHEN GAS RISES MY FOOD BUDGET GOES DOWN. IMANGE LIVING IN A HOUSE WHERE THE TEMP IN THE WINTER IS 50 NOT 65-70 LIKE MOST HAVE THEIR'S SET. AT TIMES JAIL LOOKS BETTER THAT WHAT I HAVE NOW. JAIL = 3 MEALS A DAY , MEDICAL AND SOMEWHAT OF A SOCIAL LIFE WHERE I COULD TALK TO PEOPLE INSTEAD OF THE WALLS & TV

I think that all of us will be most hard hit when we go to the grocery store. The prices will continue to go up drastically more than the 'so called' inflation rate which does not even take into consideration things we use every day like food or fuel when they decide what our rate of inflation is.
