When Gas > Wages

It is becoming increasingly difficult to make ends meet these days with the increases in everything we buy being dictated by the rising gas prices what are we to do. Our wages are not being increased accordingly to make up the differance. Inflation is crushing low and middle income families to the breaking point. It is disappointing the lack of reaction from government and business are having to help the average person. Governement in Canada continues to charge 40% gas tax on every L of fuel we buy and rather than cutting some of that back they continue to charge. They need to look at ways to help consumers, if that means we need to re-look at what road projects we work on at this time than that may be a temporary measure we should look at. It's time to start making noise within the government for action.
