High Gas Prices

by Jessica Cervantez

"It's time to get something economical or ride a bicycle or something," Travis Sessions said, as he was pumping gas.

Alicia Ervin, a 21-year-old, says gas prices are really hitting her pocketbook.

"They have really went up, ooh, it's just amazing," she said.

You might think gas prices are high now, but store owners say be ready they'll continue to go up.

Sessions said, "The prices have really went up and it's really hitting you in the wallet, and it doesn't seem like it's going to let up anytime soon."

Sessions says gas prices are going up so much, he now has to pay attention to where he drives, and for what.

It's already becoming common to see gas at more than $2.00 per gallon. Another hike in oil prices, is making gasoline more expensive.

$1.98 is the cheapest Ervin has seen. Gas price signs all across East Texas are changing fast. Within just minutes of being at thes Shell gas station off Highway 69, the price increase from $1.99 to $2.01.
