Original Message Okay, you pull up to the pump and it costs you $60 or $80 to fill up. It hurts like hell but you do it. But how may weeks can you keep doing this?

As gas and diesel go up, it increases food costs (plus the summer drought will be raisng prices.)

So what's you're breaking point. Any answer you give is the correct answer. Maybe you're screwed in 2-3 weeks. Or maybe you're good for a year.

Wild card: As more people go bust due to gas and food prices, more businesses suffer and lay people off. Do you risk getting laid off.

Double wildcard: Everyone's taxes are going up starting January 1st because the Bush tax cuts expire. IOW, you will have less take home starting in January.
