I have just been so appalled by the gas price increasing so much by month and annually. As it is society and living expenses are increasing as well with taxes and everything else especially in North America. People are working so hard to make ends meet to put bread and butter on the table and make an honest living. These gas prices do not have to be this high. Most of peoples earnings go into gas nowadays and high taxes. It is unbelievable how ridiculous it is. Some people who make minimum wage or a little higher use a day or two’s worth of work to just pay for fuel costs. How are people supposed to go out driving, enjoy themselves, go away on road trips, go to and from work, go to functions, gatherings with the constant worry of gas consumption. Yes I do believe in saving the environment and less emissions and toxins going up in the ozone layer, but there is a limit. People shouldn’t have to worry about their gas tanks all the time. Some people think twice of driving to places and making trips here and there because of the constant worry of having an empty tank. Whatever happened to the 39cents a liter or gallon or whatever it was? So people end up staying home or they end up not taking the car anywhere and they miss out on something really good. These gas companies and government should really focus on getting the fuel prices down significantly. People aren’t born to work like crazy and work so many hours a day just pay off for gas and some people work far from home and some don’t have access to public transit as much and things have become too inconvenient. People deserve breaks and people deserve to be treated like human beings. Nobody should be subject to work like animals(pardon me) to just pay for high taxes and fuel costs. People have families to support, necessities of life, school tuition to pay, medical expenses, utilities, and so much more. All these add up and some barely make it.
I look at these gas stations and I look at these prices and its nuts. totally nuts! Don’t go too far, the groceries are so expensive. 25 bucks doesn’t really get you far these days with that either. Now people are looking for more fuel efficient cars, hybrids and smaller cars. Now these big cars with more than 4 cylinders are being downsized. I feel for people who work to just pay for gas and food here and there. Life has become so tough out there, high rising costs that are hurting everyone and that is why so much stress, depression and people who go crazy. Its because of things like this. People are getting sick, people don’t know if they are coming or going. I really feel for people out there who don’t even have enough time to spend with family and friends because of it. Before Sunday’s nobody used to work and people were entitled to time off, now its so fast paced and people don’t have weekends and evenings anymore to spend with their loved ones. even during holidays. My heart aches and it breaks me to hear these stories about people trying to survive to make a living. Its unbelievable. I really do hope things turn around for peoples sake. Were all human, we deserve sometime to ourselves and our loved ones. Change needs to happen and needs to happen now before more and more people get sick, depressed and stressed. Life should be balanced with everything and life is not all about work, but nowadays unfortunately that is what people need to do to survive in this day in age. Lets hope for the best and hopefully things improve.
