Expensive editor,

Why is the price of residing so excessive? The worth of gasoline, electrical energy and fuel is right down to nearly pre-Ukraine battle ranges. So what’s the excuse?

The battle was the primary motive, or so authorities stated, that all the pieces went up in value together with foodstuffs as they needed to be transported to the completely different supermarkets and the value of diesel was extortionate.

Now gasoline costs have dropped, the value of meals continues to rise steeply within the massive supermarkets. In fact the federal government doesn’t actually care as the upper the value of meals, the extra VAT they rake in.

Supposedly they lowered the VAT on primary foodstuff, one thing which I actually haven’t observed had any impact in any respect on my weekly store. I actually don’t perceive both the way it’s cheaper to eat a kilo of prawns than just a few salmon fillets or an entrecote. A kilo of prawns can also be cheaper than a prepared roasted rooster.

Possibly it’s time to assist small village outlets, however once more having supported a small village bar final weekend and after having just a few tapas, we have been charged €60, hardly low cost both.
