I just have to say something about these rising gas costs. I know no one is going to read this or care that it is written, but I hope to feel better about it. I have two kids, a husband, a dog, a mortgage and would be considered middle class income wise and the rising gas costs are really impacting how I can afford the "American Dream", if you will. I already live in a neighborhood that has high taxes so my son can have a good education. With that home also comes high water prices because the company that owns the water tower in the neighborhood can charge over $100 a month for water and sewer service. Luckily, my family has their health, so there are no real health bills to add to everything. I really feel that the gov't neeeds to step in, swallow their pride and break whatever deals they've made with the oil companies to benefit their own parties and give the American people the break! Afterall, it was the American people that voted you into the office. Let those who have to struggle TRY to have the American Dream... without having to sacrifice everyday needs for their family.
