I heard last night that CNN reported that milk is going to $8.00 a gallon. Look at how far greed has taken man! :pistols::devil2: If that happens, what are families with children going to do. Some go through several gallons a week! :depressed:

WOW!!!

I pay 2.48 a gallon right now, that is a pretty huge increase. I know in Hawaii they pay about 5 a gallon.

Did CNN say this is a going to happen, or were they just talking about how things are rising and they wouldn't be surprised if it jumped up to 8 a gallon?

Even gas is going down, at least where I live. I filled my tank yesterday for 2.94 a gallon.

It will go up if this bill is not passed, and going up triple price is an estimate.

No need to panic yet!

If it does happen, cut back on other items and put your trust in Jehovah. I have had more financial problems the last few years then ever before. No matter how tough, with lots of prayers to Jehovah, and with cutting back on non essential items, we have always had what we needed.

Jeremiah 37:21 Jehovah will make sure we all have we need.

Betty between my hubby & kids I have often thought about buying a cow or goat..They drink milk like there's no tomorrow.. Won't it be grand when we have to worry about having enough to buy milk, bread the nescessities of this life just to get by. There is a song By James Blundell. An Aussie country singer. Called Way out West. Its a good pick me up song. I think of Jehovah's new system as the perfect solution. The last 3 weeks have been hectic. My car has a mind of its own at the moment. He's not behaving. Lol. Its a Holden & should be a Ford. Lol. I have had to train & bus everywhere. Its not something I am use to but it has been a good learning curb. How easy is the life we will get to lead when We are in Paradise.

Haha I had to laugh at your reference to the Holden behaving like a Ford :punk:

I'd rather be pushing a Holden than driving a Ford lol.

And no offence to bald men, but when James Blundell lost his hair I think he lost a lot of fans :D

Sis Gabe, I feel for you! So sorry that you are having to cope with these things that drive us crazy. The more of the friends that I talk to & hear from I am certain that we all are in the same boat.:boating: Satan is working overtime. We will be so happy when he & his demons are in the abyss!(<img src=)'> Praying for better days for you.:heart:

The cheapest supermarket milk here works out at about the equivalent of $7 a gallon and farmers reckon, after the supermarkets take their cut, they are paid less than it costs to produce and it must go up in price so they get a decent price too!

Our weekly coal was the equiivalent of $50 a week (2 bags = 110 kilos) if we keep the heating on in winter most of the day. We try to just light the fire in the stove in the evening - it heats our radiators and water - and leave it overnight and live with the residual heat the next morning. We are out during the day most days.

Fuel is so expensive, so when we saw the local government worker replacing park fencing in town, we begged the old posts and he drove up and threw them into our garden - it saved his petrol costs taking them to the landfill in the next town to dispose of them. The telephone company were replacing the old oak telephone line pole by our house, so we begged the old one and he sawed it into 4 and threw that into the garden. My husband's brother-in-law, despite being in a wheelchair, came round and with my husband helping, used his chainsaw and sawed them all up for us and we have plenty logs, so we don't need to spend so much on coal in winter now!

We look forward to the time we won't have to scrimp and strive so hard for everyday things. Talk about difficulties refining a person, at least scrimping makes you appreciate things and not be wasteful!
