Some East Texans Don't Mind Rising Gas Prices

Gas prices around East Texas are rising again, but that isn't stopping drivers from filling up at the pump.

Right now, prices around Lufkin average about $1.77 a gallon for regular unleaded gas.  We caught up with one East Texan who says high gas prices don't bother him one bit.  In fact, he says he doesn't even pay attention to the cost.

"Jesse Potts says, "You gotta have it and I gotta ride.  I don't care about the prices.  When I look at them, that's when it hurts.  I just buy gas."

Gas prices have gone up about 10 cents per gallon in many locations during the past week.
