Frank - you are bad Rolling on the floor laughing

With the cost of living here it's close to impossible to make ends meet on that wage ...... which is why both parents usually work outside the home and many single mothers struggle to provide for their children.

Gasoline costs $1.71 pr. liter or $6.5 per gallon ..... I filled the tank today for roughly $96

1 liter of milk costs about 86 cents which means a gallon is about $3.3
1 kg of butter costs about $3.8 which means a pound would be about $ 1.72
And ten eggs cost $4.1

what's really expensive is the imported stuff, for instance a 690 g (1,5 pound) box of Cocoa Puffs costs $5.9

nope, unfortunately not. Thumbs down Mass layoffs are still happening, the government is making brutal cuts in the welfare system, not sure there'll be much left once they're done. Taxes are up, the cost of living is up, loans are up, wages are down. It's a mess.

Scary isn't it? Same happening here and I am afraid we are just at the tip of the iceberg for how bad it will get.

I think Iceland is the only (or one of very few) countries in the world where loans are index linked ... which means everytime prices are raised on basic food products or the prices of heat and electricity for instance go up - so do the loans. Which basically means you keep paying off your morgage but still your debt just keeps on getting bigger ...... it really stinks.

Frank - I couldn't possibly live in the US despite the low food prices Hilarious!
