A lot of drivers in Zanesville were hot under the collar today and it had nothing to do with the temperature. It was the high cost of gasoline.
It shot up to $3.99 a gallon Tuesday. Just this morning it was selling for $3.69 a gallon at the Maple Avenue BP at Forest Avenue.
Motorist Mary Ann Young said, "I'm a little concerned, because I know I have to do without something else in order to... but I can't run my car without it, so what am I going to do?"
"It's ridiculous, I've got to cut down on a lot of things I've got to do. I told myself when it reached $3.99, I'm going to be home more often, so that's exactly what I'm going to do," said Jose Abreu
"I think it's crazy. I mean, people can't do anything now with their children, and now I don't think they'll be able to go on vacations because of the gas prices," added Veronica Hazen.
On Monday WHIZ News reported that the Triple-A Auto Club said that gas prices had fallen six cents since the previous Monday. It was the first time in five weeks that the cost of gasoline dropped.
