Drivers Paying More To Fill Up

Posted:

It's costing drivers more to fill up their tank than one month ago.

Gas prices in North Dakota have climbed more than 50 cents in the last few weeks.

And drivers are taking notice.

<<"It's really expensive," Monica Miller said.

Gas prices are on the rise in North Dakota, setting an all time record high for this time of the year.

"I drive a lot like I put a lot of miles on and I guess I know it's on the credit card a lot, my mom always asks why is your credit card bill so high, and I'm like it's just the gas," Paige Thomas said.

According to a AAA spokesman, drivers in North Dakota are paying an average of $3.67 for a gallon of regular gasoline, up 60 cents from one month ago.

In Bismarck drivers are paying an average of $3.72 for a gallon of gas, up 69 cents from last month.

"My raises don't keep up with the gas prices and the food prices have all gone up too and my wages don't do the same," Barbara King said.

"It used to take $40 to fill my car, now it's like $50 or $60, so definitely an impact," Miller said.

With prices creeping close to four dollars a gallon, it's forcing many drivers to change their driving habits.

"Maybe carpool a lot more you know, not drive as much I guess," Thomas said.

"I kind of try to stay in town more, try not to leave as much," Miller said.

And drivers can get used to the higher prices, because there's no sign of them going down anytime soon.>>

AAA says prices shouldn't go up too much more, but that we usually don't see the highest prices of the year until around Memorial Day.
