    Pretend you're a broke Floridian. You have about for hundred dollars in the bank and need to drive you, your girlfriend, and your young son to safety. Your car has a faulty fuel pump that you couldn't afford to fix, so you'll need more gas normal for the drive. You'll also need to get enough water for the two of you (your son is being breastfed), food, and a motel stay in. If unscrupulous business owners are allowed to take advantage, these necessities would likely be well out of your price range. For the crime of not having several thousand thousand dollars on hand, you and your family may will die.
