You are so right Glamourgirl, we are blessed with health, family and love. I need to focus more on that than the finances and economy. I am in SC. There are problems with the gas shortage just in the south east: NC, SC and GA. I think TN might have some problems too. As for the SUV, I have a smaller SUV but honeslty I need a bigger one, I can hardly fit my family in the car we have now. But with the way the economy is right now I don't think a new car is in our future any time soon or a house unfortunately. Before the crisis we were looking to move but I hear you can't even get a lone right now so moving is out for now.
