Default I'm going broke here, time to move to another country

My bills keep going up along with my rent. My rent started out at $450 per month and 2 years later its $525. And to top off my sorrows, it took $30 to fill the Bonny Bon Bon . Ouch my wallet hurts so bad. I need some pain killers.In 1999 I could fill my GA for 12 bucks from empty. Anyone else notice everything is shooting up in price? All we need is for the government to put there foot down and stop all the price gouging.

If you need a financial break dont move here...lol, rent for something cheap is at least $850 bux. Gas will cost ya $40-50 bones.

Your currency goes farther tho...hehehe

Still cant convince me to move

No worries Dan, its just money...

Ticks me off how one of the big oil companies stated they made a larger profit than prior years. Sounds to me like the prices are only high cause exxon mobile wants to keep getting richer and richer. If it gets to 2 bucks a gallon I will have to give up and park the car, plus if my rent goes up one more time I am moving into a cardboard box

Supposedly the farther from the distribution point, the more it costs to get the gas there and the more they have to charge to "break even".

BTW, live with your parents. I do. Not planning on moving out til I own a home or two.
