These checks will help a little but it will not solve the high prices we are paying for gas and food. It's a tiny little band-aid for a gashing wound. I do think it is wise to invest in a fair amount of non perishable food as those prices are going thru the roof and they will only get higher due to the gas prices. I believe sooner or later the truckers will go on strike because right now they are not going to be able to keep this up and make a living. As for gas I would like to know if there is a way to stock pile some gas in an efficient way. As usual the oil companies are reporting record profits in the billions I would think they would have some compassion and not charge as much as they can at least for a while but alas not so.
I think I heard that too. You're probably right about the band-aid. I'd say more about it but I don't want to get too political on everyone and get sent to the woodshed.
