The problem with rubber meeting road

In general, high gas prices are a good thing, in that they partially internalize the externalities of driving. But in the middle of a recess... (ahem, recovery), they create a real problem--the people who can least afford them are hit particularly hard by them. I am glad that at least the payroll tax was cut, but it would have been better for the cut to have been targeted.

Your entry exemplifies a view I believe few North Americans understand. People want lower gas prices, now. However, these people do not take into account the long term effects and costs of gasoline. Governments could make efforts to control gas prices, but I would argue that is not the answer. The accessibility and programs which assist citizens in paying market prices are more important.

DAVID LINDAHL say that once you thing a real estate asset has a Encumbrance then browse the net and get a Realtor in that particular area and call and inquire what he or she may know about that real estate asset or location of the property, this will surely protect you from the future issues and head ache due to wrong move.
