I just finished reading the paper this morning. Between the article about no end in sight to the increase in gas prices to another article about the large increase in natural gas prices and another article about the Weed, NM general store and gas station having to close because of high gas AND grocery prices it is really making me worry. Will I be able to afford to go to Lobo games this year? It was tought to manage last year, and prices could be 50% higher by basketball season. Then, if the cost to increase my home also increase by that much, what do I do? Do I have to choose between heating my home and going to a Lobo game?
Things are getting really bad. Gas at one station went up 30 cents overnight this weekend here. It cost me $24 to put a quarter tank of gas in my car on Friday, even before this went up. Our lives are going to be changing very much unless something is done. Groceries are getting too explensive, gasoline is getting too expensive and everything that has to be delivered by vehicles using gasoline is increasing in price dramatically. I believe this is going to affect attendance at Lobo games. There are hundreds of people, that have season tickets and drive from Santa Fe, Taos, Farmington, Espanola, Gallup, etc. Will these people have to give up their tickets so they can buy groceries?
I guess Im going to have to start putting a little money away each week (that I can hardly afford) so I can pay for my gas this season. It is scary. How far is this going to go?
