Looks like America is about to fall into an even more sever economic depression. It just keeps sliding downhill.

How many of you have jobs? If you don't, are you looking?
What is the price of gas where you live?
Do you go to college?
How much do you make per pay period?
How are you spending?

just a few questions. Do you have any stories for how crappy our market is?

I have job. I work at a radio station as a board operator (I'm actually at work right now...yes, I'm getting paid for this)

Right now, gas is approx $1.68

Yes, I go to college.


I make a few hundred bucks a month.

I spend rarely, and frankly, I'm not worried about it.

I have a career.
Gas is 1.69.
I spend what I need to spend and save what I need to save.

Not too worried about the current state of things. I only wish I had more money to invest right now for the value stocks.

EDIT: I make a little over 1k every two weeks after all of my deductions.

2. gas was $1.65 per gallon last i saw

3. yes, i am a junior at Millersville University.

4. well, unemployment will pay me $113 per week, so thats how much i am getting right now.

5. i am saving as much as i can. i have about $4000 in the bank. i just spent $140 today on school books, and i will probably end up spending another $300 before i have all of the books i need.

What is the price of gas where you live? 1.75 or so

How are you spending? Hardly anything anymore. I have a couple k in my savings account, but need it for gas, car payments, school, and such. Once I get a job I'll be able to start again. It sucks.

How many of you have jobs? If you don't, are you looking?: I don't really have time for a job, but I'll probably be working on the night staff at my dorm this semester. Plenty of time to do my calculus homework.

What is the price of gas where you live?: Where I'm from (South Carolina) it varies anywhere from $1.49 to $1.69. I'm not sure of the price in West Virginia.

Do you go to college?: Yes, I attend West Virginia University.

How much do you make per pay period?: On night staff I'll be making $8 an hour.

How are you spending?: I don't spend a lot of money. I eat downtown with my friends every now and then. I buy shampoo and toothpaste when I run out. I'm saving up for a ukulele and an electric guitar, so I'm trying not to spend as much as possible.

The rest of the world wouldn't be in bad shape if America wasn't in economic downturn. Europe's trade is intertwined with American's. We're down, so you are too.

But it's Americas fault. Our government cannot balance a budget.
