Gas Prices Continue To Stay High



Bookmark and Share

Jamelle Moen is a mom living in Sioux Falls who like others, knows the frustration it takes filling up her car.


Jamelle Moen said, "It's one more expense. You kind of have to decide how often you fill up."


Jamelle tries to stay as eco-friendly as she can.


"I use the ethanol blend. It makes it a little bit less expensive. I'm not driving as often as I used to,” said Moen.


In the past, the trend is that gas prices go up leading up to Labor Day and down after. This year gas prices have only increased since the holiday.


For Residents like Matthew Hansen filling up the car is the last thing he wants to do. He says he spends more money than he would like on the fuel.


"I would guess at least about 200 dollars about every few weeks. It is crazy but I have no choice,” said Hansen.


Hansen says he remembers when gas prices were just over a dollar. For years, he has watched gas prices climb over that amount.


“It frustrates me. It is either not pay the gas prices or not drive anywhere,” said Hansen.


For college student, Anthony Thomas, paying for gas isn't exactly a luxury.


"It's going to be a really difficult especially in my position where I don't have a job right now so it's hard to pay for the gas and when STI is a mile and a half away and the interstate. It's going to be difficult,” said Thomas.
