Crazy Gas Prices!!!

A lot of people are talking about the gas prices and why they are so high!!!  The reason is becuase of what is going on in the eastern side of the world in the oil producing countries such as Egypt and Libya. They are having conflict in those regions over government and this has decreased oil production. Prices have gone up by almost 50 cents per gallon! That may not seem like much, but let’s say you need to fill up your car with gas and your gas tank holds 24 gallons. Since gas is about$3.55, you would multiply that by 24 and that would cost about $85 for a full tank of gas!!! Imagine what you could do with all of that extra money if you didn’t have to spend it on gas!!! That’s not even the worst part. Experts say that the gas prices will go over $4.00 per gallon by Memorial Day!! This is why the people of the U.S. need to start moving away from oil as their main source of fuel. Theeconomy was just starting to get better and then this happened! Leave in the comments what you would do with eighty-five dollars.

Haiti

On January 12 2010, a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the republic of Haiti. Before this earthquake, Haiti was a poor country, and most Haitians were living on less than 1 U.S. dollar per day. When this earthquake happened, many of people were trapped in the rubble, and they had no homes or shelter. Many organizations acted quickly and started suppling food and temporary shelters. On February 1st, dozens of artists (including Pink, Lil Wanye, Kanye West, Nick Jonas, LL Cool J, Robin Thieke, Celine Dion, Akon, Rob Thomas, Wyclef, Jeff Bridges, Vince Vaughn, Barbra Streisand, Jordin Sparks, Good Charlotte’s Madden brothers, Tony Bennett, Josh Groban, Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Keri Hilson, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Katharine McPhee, Sean Garrett, Will.I.Am, Carlos Santana, Melanie Fiona, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus, Busta Rhymes, Nicole Scherzinger, Nicole Richie, Usher, Julianne Hough, Raphael Saadiq, Zac Brown, India Arie, “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, Musiq Soulchild, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Fonzworth Bentley, Kid Cudi, Iyaz, Bizzy Bone, Nipsey Hussle, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, Trey Songz, Faith Evans, Mya and Gladys Knight.)gathered to record “We are the world” for Haiti. 25 years ago, the song was recorded to help Africa, and now it is here to help Haiti. If you buy and download it from iTunes, part of the profit will go to rebuilding Haiti. Here is the video.
