  • It started when the gas prices jumped in one month to over $3.50 a gallon for gas. It snowballed from there to higher food prices, combines with millions of people getting forclosed on their ortgages and the sad news everyone is begging congress for bail out money. The banks got BIG $$ and turned around and used it to buy up other banks rather than make new loans and that only made things worse.
