Paragraph 1

The cost of living is hitting people's pockets all across the world. Soaring oil and gas prices have made basic like food, heating and transport unaffordable for many people. In the UK over the few months, the debate has been over the dilemma of "heating or eating". Energy prices have more than doubled this year for many , resulting in those on low or on benefits facing the choice of heating their home, or eating. Life is so for some that they do not have money to use gas or electricity to boil potatoes. This situation will be exacerbated by rises in contributions to the country's health system, which come into effect next week.

Now go to   Paragraph 2.
