Oil & Housing Don't Mix

oil & housing @ justhelpnow.orgOil & Housing Don't Mix...well at least not in a positve way.

With gas prices hitting the $4 a gallon level and many estimates expect $5 & homeownership at incredibly low levels, where's the economic recovery?

Homeownership has dropped to the lowest level since 1998.

In the 1st Quarter of 2011, homeownership fell to 66.4%.


Many people are unable to purchase a home for a variety of reasons and lack of confidence in the economy doesn't help. As gas prices continue to increase...economic confidence from a large share of the population decreases.



It's time to take care of the "employed class"...those that are figuring out a way to pay their bills on time, especially their mortgage. We need to STOP forcing the middle class to bear the burden of our "lack of a consistent economic recovery"

In many areas, the high cost of gasoline will force up the housing values in the close-in neighborhoods.  At least that is one positive thing about it.

MJ, This is why I have become involved with our local tea party.  Never in my life have I been involved in politics but if we don't stand up and say enough is enough who will!!

We live in a rural area. If you live out of town you are driving to get somewhere. The high gas prices are going to kill me. I live outside of town and spend a lot of time on the road.
