fuel prices

wow all over the news last night the price of fuel.we all knew it would be going up but the reality of it is staggering. I dont work outside the home therefore I only use the car when I absolutly need to, but still Its costing me between fifty and eighty dollars a week to run. I cant imagine if you had to get to work everyday what percentage of your pay goes into your tank. Between fuel prices and the cost of child care I wonder if its worth working at all. Staying at home, raising your kids, growing food and recycling, mending and making do, may just be the better option in the long run.
I,m sure many people will do the sums and make sacrifices and will come out better in the end.
