Tuesday morning, many area gas stations raised their prices to just a few cents shy of $4.00 a gallon.
It's a nearly twenty cent jump from Monday's prices, and many customers say this is forcing them to change their lifestyle.
We've gotten used to gas prices taking 10-, 15- or even 20-cent jumps, but there is still something about that $4-a-gallon figure, isn't there? One of my co-workers said that for the first time when she pulled into a gas station, she actually felt like crying. She's a part-timer and lives some distance away. She says that at some point, she'll have to quit, because driving to and from work will cost her more than she gets paid.
