A Flexible Way to Live Life

With so many chocies in energy providers in Texas, it makes you wonder what they’re doing right compared to the other states! I’ve moved from state to state over the years and even if a couple of the others have several different energy companies as Texas does, none of them have the number that the Lone Star has brought together. It’s the abundance of energy companies which has given rise to such great prices for the residents here while the competition continues to drive prices down. It’s partially why I’ve chosen to call the state home for so long – cheap bills!

All in all, it effects everything. The very fact that our cost of living is so low here can be tracked back to the numerous energy companies. With lower costs for businesses and residents alike, we can purchase our groceries cheaper. Our rent is typically going to be much lower than the national average in equivalent cities. My rent is only $500 a month for a place that cannot be called small. On top of that, it’s close to everything that I need it to be close to. I couldn’t ask for much more from an apartment anywhere else.

Are you finding yourself worrying over your monthly bills? Do you wonder why you’re paying so much for rent on a place that you may not even entirely like that much? I can only encourage you to seek a new place to live! Texas has a diverse number of jobs available here and while it might be quite the warm, even humid state, it’s one of the greatest places that I’ve called home. The people here are great, the food is even better, the cost of living can give you the freedom and flexibility to do whatever you like!

Electric Company Rates and Oil

newlogo.pngI live in Texas and I have been very interested in recent developments with the price of oil. It is kind of weird that the prices of oil have gotten so low, and I guess that maybe the Saudi government knew what they were doing when they decided to not lower production, in order to keep the price stable. I am not sure Russia was very happy about that situation, since their economy is so dependent upon oil exports. Anyway, I want to learn more here about how the decrease in oil prices will affect the local energy prices in Texas.

I am sure that there has to be some connection here, but I am not sure if it would cause an increase in prices, or if it would cause a decrease prices. But it is something I am very interested in. I am trying to learn more about economics in general, and how politics across the world affect the economy. It is a lot more complex than I would have ever guessed before I started reading about the subject. But I am convinced I am going to be able to make progress on making sense of all of this, if I am able to continue to commit a lot of my time to learning about the subject. It is important to me to have a grasp of what is going on in the world, because I think that we all have a duty to be informed as citizens. Our country cannot run properly if our citizens are not informed, and I do not mean that they should watch the major news networks. All of those networks are biased and they dumb down stories. It is awful, and I wish that something could be done about it. But I doubt that there is anything to do.
