Right now we are in a recession so, yes, things are expensive and people are struggling. Eventually we will come out of this situation and, hopefully, prices will drop as we transition to alternative fuels and become less dependent on foreign oil. I have noticed people working past retirement age for quite a while now...it's not a new thing. It takes more to live plus people want more so they put off retiring until they feel they're in good financial shape.
