Here we go again. Gas prices are inching toward that $4 mark, in fact, the local average is $3.82 a gallon. Most of the gas stations around Toledo are sitting at $3.89 a gallon but it could get more expensive, and for some drivers it's starting to take a toll.
In June, drivers saw prices just below the three dollar mark but know it's a much different scene. We all know that the prices go up and down, but AAA reports July's jump is the largest since 2000.
No driver wants to spend $20 on 5 gallons of gas. But many people say they have to drive to get to work to make money, and they have no other choice.
Toledoan Danny Goss says, "its either put food on the table or find a way to work."
"It's crazy! I've got a small business and I have to fill up two trucks and its going to cause my prices to go up too," Mark Terry, a frustrated driver told 13abc.
Jef Edwards, another frustrated driver, said, "I don't like it. It's hard enough to make ends meet now."
Some analysts predict prices will continue to rise in August, while drivers are hoping for some relief.
AAA reports the drought, the hurricane season, and demand have all played a role this time around.
