Save Money on Gas

In a world with rising gas prices going bonkers, people are looking to new ways of saving money on traveling expenses. People are looking for cars that take little to no gas for the amount of travel they get. Electric cars are almost just as bad with energy bills rising as well. What can the public do when they have to get to work? People are going to friends and family to help them commute. Rideshare and public transportation is growing. Yet many people don’t feel too comfortable with the security with those modes of transportation. So what is an avenue that people can feel more comfortable in getting themselves to work every morning?

Biking their way to work.

For those people who are able to work close to home there is hope! The article above shows that there are alternative ways to get to work all the while getting a good workout in the process. People can get to work using bicycles. The new bikes and biking in general could be a smart alternative to wasting gas.

Gas Prices Now Going UP

Well here we go again. According to analysts and refinery reports people in Southern California are seeing a price hike as much as $.73/gallon. Analysts say this is due to slow production by one of the Northern California refineries that has been running at reduced capacity because of a fire earlier in the year.

Why gas prices are going up in October 2012.

Here is my $.02 on the subject. I understand that the government has been telling us for years that it takes many years to build a Refinery for Gas. We’ve been having this argument since the 70’s. Why hasn’t any NEW refineries been built since then? The last NEW refinery that was built in the United States was 1977 in Garyville, Louisiana. All the rest have been upgrades to old Facilities. WHY?!!! We have had rising gas prices for so long and the Government has not allowed any new Oil refineries? All politicians from both sides of the isle say that building a refinery wouldn’t lower gas prices till years from now. But that’s the same excuse that they keep giving every year and nothing has gotten done since the 70’s. This is horrible! It is destroying commuters especially in California. Shipping charges go up, in return that raises prices up on everyone for inflation across the board with every type of good. This gives people less discretionary money and drives down economic growth. Why has this not been done?

Home Insurance Coverage Problems

Many people are shocked to find out that their home owner’s insurance policy doesn’t cover a great deal of things. For instance many policies in Southern California do not cover flood insurance. Another very popular instance is earthquake insurance. Home owners should always talk with their insurance agent to find out exactly what is covered on their policy.
Beware of These Common Holes in Homeowners Insurance Coverage
Another occurrence is when something happens that IS covered but only to a certain amount. Another difficulty that can befall is when people do not take into account their deductible.  Earthquake insurance in Southern California is notorious for its 15% deductible.  A good quality agent can tell you all the ins and outs of each coverage.  I highly recommend people take a good hard look at what they need and what they feel comfortable with.  Insurance is there for when you need it, but you have to be informed for those instances.
