One of the main concerns for everyone at the moment is the seemingly endless rise in bills and utilities. Mortgage rates shot up 5 times this year, and are supposedly going to continue to do so. The strain on everyone is showing, but not as much as you would think. Bars are still full (according to the press, people just drink one "cubata" less!), and Barcelona is buzzing with tourists.
Fecsa Endesa, the main electricity company also announced a rise of almost 9% in electricity bills - something the air-conditioned shops will have to take into account as well as every one of us, too. They are also going to start sending bills on a monthly basis, instead of each quarter - I suppose to lighten the load and for you to be able to at least pre-empt the following month's total!
