$Gas Prices Climb$
by Olivia HefnerGas prices aren’t just affecting the girth of people’s wallets, now they're starting to affect some citizens’ physical well being. Those who live in the city and have the luxury of biking, walking or using public transportation will not experience the same problems as those who have long, gas guzzling drives to the city to buy food.
As gas prices climb, people are forced to make cuts in other sections of their spending. Some are able to cut out eating out, or other non-essential items, while some members of society are forced to skimp on their groceries. It’s simply impossible for them to pay for the gas to make the commute to town, and then be able to spend as much as they need to on groceries. Unfortunately, many people stuck in this situation also drive older, less fuel-efficient cars.
