Reno has reached a new record for gas prices. From Wednesday night to Thursday the price rose two cents. The average gas price came in at three dollars and thirty-four cents a gallon.
AAA says gas prices have been going up about 15 cents per month, that's 1/2 cent a day. At this rate it's very possible we could soon see them it the four dollar mark very soon. For drivers these prices are tough to swallow.
Steve Choman from Sparks says, "I'm dating myself but when I first started driving gas was $.24 cents and now it's $3.24 it's getting a little outrageous"
"It's making it more financially difficult to do other things," says driver Vicki Logan from Fernley.
