Ask the DebtBuster - Why have gas prices come down so much?

Because Congress begins debate on approval of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada and the last thing the oil producing companies want is for North America to produce more oil. These countries like Saudi Arabia want us to remain dependent on them for our Oil. So, what better way to derail those that support the Keystone Pipeline than by dropping the price of oil so we think all is well and who needs to build a pipeline...make sense?

Be very suspicious when it comes to your money. You know the old saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." When it comes to your personal finances this could not be more true!! You must always protect your money carefully, be very careful about how you spend, invest and save money. Managing money is not something you should take for granted. It is a skill everyone should be working to learn and improve every day no matter how well you think you are doing...

Ask the DebtBuster - What is the best thing I can do to start improving my financial situation in 2015?

The best way to start is to get organized and knowledgeable about your income and expenses. This means creating a spending plan that reflects your actual income and expenses to the penny each month so that you can begin to properly allocate your income in a way that will help you pay down debt quickly if you have debts and most people do, and begin to build savings for investing and big purchases like a home.

Action Step: Organize your bills and pay stubs and begin constructing a Monthly Spending Plan!
