Family Budgets Will Be Strained By New Gas Prices

by Jon Henshaw

If you haven’t heard the news already, gas prices are expected to rise into the $4/gallon range. Although families with SUVs will most certainly feel the pain at the pump, many other families who are on very limited budgets will feel it the most. In many cases, there are families that will have to either forgo travel, or not be able to pay their utilities or buy food.

If you’re in a position to give financially, now might be a good time to be looking out for those who need financial assistance. There are literally thousands of single moms out there who need their vehicle to transport their children, buy groceries, and to get to work (in order to pay for everything). It literally means the world to someone in that position to not have to worry about being delinquent on payments, and knowing that they’ll be able to provide food and shelter for their kids.

Sometimes, the best gift is an anonymous gift to someone you know who is in need. Another way to help out families in need is to contact local charities or churches, and to make a donation to a fund that goes directly to these families.
