Recently President Biden said that a recession is not inevitable. The way that he worded his statement has caused confusion as to what’s happening in America.

The best advice I can share is to pay attention to the obvious. If you don’t like to watch or read the news on a regular basis, check in on the economy at least once a month. Especially now so that you aren’t surprised at the price increases that are across the board.

The American Dream Caused The Great Resignation

When most people apply for a job it is based on credentials (qualifications), and the pay rate offered. Which makes total sense. But it’s very common for that excitement of having a new job to disappear sooner than expected.

You get in the door and you realize:

  1. There is a glass ceiling.
  2. The position is more (or less) work than explained.
  3. You start taking work home; thinking dreadfully about work after hours, replaying conversations between yourself and coworkers, tossing and turning at night because you don’t want to go in.

To save money during the gas crisis, my grandmother rarely drove anywhere except to work, the grocery store and church.

Gas prices are hitting new highs. Here’s why — and how long the surge could last.

The invasion of Ukraine, which has led President Biden to ban the import of oil and natural gas from Russia, is contributing to the latest spike in gas prices. It’s tough for a lot of folks living on the financial edge, especially those who use their vehicles to earn a living. Even if you can afford to absorb the increase, paying $6 and some change for a gallon of gas can cause some psychological pain.

People are looking for ways to spend less at the gas pump. No, having your food delivered to avoid a trip to the restaurant doesn’t necessarily save you money when you factor in a service fee, a delivery charge, a possible surge charge and a tip.

West Virginia was the top state searching for “Gasoline” as of midday Thursday, followed by Idaho, Indiana and Alabama, according to Google Trends. People are also searching for answers to how long gas prices are expected to be high and what’s causing the spike.

Why high gas prices may be here to stay

Until prices stabilize and come down, there are some things drivers can do to cut down on what they pay to fill their tanks, said Ellen Edmonds, AAA public relations manager.
