The war and us, still unimaginable and yet reality, how the world is falling apart. It’s about the fears that many of us have, that are discussed in families, in kindergartens and schools, it’s about the refugees who arrive with us every day, the senseless deaths. It’s all a nightmare. One thing is certain: there will be no sudden awakening and everything will be fine again.
The effects here are not life-threatening like in Ukraine. But there is a risk of even higher inflation, even more price increases (which have already been severe due to Corona), even recession. At the petrol stations (and with heating oil) the shock is already there: the prices only know one direction – upwards! Maybe bearable for those who don’t have to drive a lot and for those who still have a company car with a fuel card. Another hole in the wallet for everyone else. So let’s remember the greatest savings potential we have: our foot on the accelerator. It’s good for 20 percent. More tire pressure, less ballast, fewer short trips also help. Everyone can slow themselves down a bit.
But Sunday driving bans and speed limits are “Sunday speeches” that, if you ask me, are of no use.
