Following the budget in the past month and the four hundrec percent increase in a levy caloed the social responsibity levy cost wipl spike again - any exvuse of some price gouging.

From FLOW a week ago 5% across the board, today a supermarket company 8% and there will be msny more to some over the next few months.

This is a very, very high cost country in which to live a "western lifestyle" and it aint getting cheaper anytime soon.
