One thing we have learnt this week

High energy prices have consequences when combined with high food prices, spending cuts and a lack of jobs.  I listened to a single mother (who works part time) on the news describe how she could only afford to heat her house for two hours a day.  She goes to bed at 8pm every night to save money.  At the same time the chancellor believes he can bring down gas prices by “fracking” like in the US.  I think this is unlikely.  What do you think and do any of our US readers have experience of “fracking”?  What can we do to help such as the single parent above?  Pay her bills, make sure her house is insulated?  This is only going to get worse…
