The average income needed to purchase a home in San Antonio is now $59,000.
Economic matters appeared to weighing heavily on Current readers this week. At least, that's what the clicks suggest.

Our two most-read stories of the week were about a new study showing that the average income required to purchase a house in the Alamo City has hit $59,000 — a level out of reach for many residents — and about Mexico hitting back economically at Gov. Greg Abbott for his slowdown of border trade.

That said, it also appears Current readers are looking to stay entertained. Among our other most-read stories were yarns about budget-priced concert tickets, a new 12-screen theater and entertainment complex and the Smashing Pumpkins show that raised the curtain on SA's new Tech Port Arena.
