You mean, treating the problem is more effective than treating the symptom?

Do you receive any benefits for the high price?
I traveled with a German woman for a couple months and evidently,Germans,at the time,all received 6-weeks paid holiday time.And healthcare costs weren't a object of anxiety,nor were they in Canada.I was laughed at when I asked how much it cost for childbirth.

G'day aerohead, no benefits but a $300 per week pension at age of 65, but electricity, food, ground tax and insurance takes care of that little money, also distances are not small here so if you wanna go anywhere or holidays you really have to live carefully here.
Greetings,
Eddie.

This calculator estimates how much more you will pay for gas this year compared to 2017. It told me $212, but I get much better than my car's rated 33 MPG: Gas Prices: See How Much More You Will Pay This Year | Time

It says the current Accord gets the same fuel economy as my HX.

Nattering nabobs of negativity. Where was that calculator when prices were plummeting.
