Gas Price Increase!

Gas prices all over the nation have increased up to at least $4.00 a gallon. The ban on Russian oil and gas and the highest inflation levels the nation has seen are major factors in this circumstance. Prior to the invasion of Ukraine, gas prices were already escalating due to suppliers struggling to meet the increasing requests from consumers due to the pandemic. With the surge of costs throughout the country and around the world, drivers are seen avoiding gas stations, leaving them struggling through the week.
