Drivers are not too happy with the rising prices.

"It’s crazy. This morning it was one price and then I left work and it’s like over $4," one driver said.

This driver says it now takes her nearly $55 to fill her car up.

"Before it was like $20 would fill it up, maybe $25 but now we’re probably just a little over half a tank."

Inflation is impacting nearly every aspect of life.

"I have kids and of course they eat. Food has definitely increased as well. Like everybody, I’ve really felt the burn when it comes to food," one driver said.

Electric car drivers said they don’t have to deal with these problems.

"The most I’ve ever had to pay is probably $9 to $10 bucks to fill it up to 300 miles," an electric car driver said.

"It’s way better than gas because gas prices today are ridiculous. It’s insane so I encourage everybody to get a Tesla," another electric car driver said.
