Three dollars and sixty four cents for regular and four twenty nine for diesel. It's the highest gas prices East Texas has seen. Now local drivers are wondering when it will stop. "They can raise it as high as they want it because they know it's a supply and demand they can raise it up to five dollars or six dollars and what are we gonna do. We're gonna pay it cause we need to get to work, why cause we have big SUV's and we have V8's," Nicholas Zamudio explained.
Other drivers say it's not just about the vehicles we drive. As gas rose more than 10 cents this weekend they're worried the oil companies are just trying to make a buck when they know drivers will be on the road. Teresa Schmidt said, "I think it did go up ten cents because of mothers day because they knew there would be more commuters."
