Three Months After Hurricane Maria

Three Months After Hurricane Maria

Today I paid 75 cents for a small apple.  I purchased four of them at the Marias’ Supermarket, Las Marias.  Most things went up.  A box of 12 candles sticks was under 2 dollars before the disaster, but now is close to 4 dollars or more.

Elsewhere, the same story.  Gasoline went up from 62 cents regular per liter to 72 cents or more per liter.  I paid 8 dollars for a quart of oil for my car.

But nevertheless, a bottle of water is more expensive than gasoline costing a buck or more for about 16 oz.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and to all!
