Gas prices are nearing $4 per gallon of regular, and they are expected to continue to rise.
According to AAA, the national average is $3.99. Texas drivers have it a little easier, paying an average of $3.86, but the average in Houston is $3.88.
Some analysts have predicted that gas could cost $5 per gallon in the summer months.
The soaring prices are putting a strain on many drivers’ bank accounts.
“It’s ridiculous. Sometimes I have to walk where I need to go,” driver Kevin Bonner said. “It just feels like a crisis.”
Drivers said they are trying to get all their errands done on one trip to save money.
“Got to put less in and driving less,” driver Chad Wilson said. “Can’t afford to fill it up no more.”
Some drivers are paying $75 to $100 each time they fill up their tanks.
The pain at the pump could cause drivers to shorten their summer vacations, or cut them out completely.
Rental car companies are putting the squeeze on drivers who do not return their cars with a full tank of gas. Many are charging $6 per gallon to fill it up, and Hertz is charging $9.29 per gallon.
