As I don't have a car, nor do I travel much, and as a pensioner the bus costs me half price this does not affect me much. Plus as an invalid I have a reduction on my electricity bill. Israel is not such a bad country, it's just that Israelis don't know how to budget. Food is cheap if you don't buy in Supermarkets. Phones calls are cheap, it's just that Israeli's talk endlessly without thinking of the cost then curse when they get their phone bills.
