Gas prices go up and down all the time but an increase Wednesday night, ten cents or so, was an attention grabber.
It's almost $4.00 a gallon in some places, up a quarter in a month and that can add up fast.
A Thursday night football game at Creighton Prep and chances are most fans had to drive here.
“We do quite a bit of driving unfortunately,” said Foley.
Foley is a father of three; one driver and another who's about to start driving.
“My wife took a new job to increase our family income. We knew we weren't going to be able to afford the driving and all the family cars,” said Foley.
Still their car use is carefully monitored and he takes advantage of a third driver.
“We live on 180th and Center and my daughter brings my son to Creighton Prep and she goes on to Duchesne. And I take the youngest one to St. Roberts and we have to get them all home,” said Foley.
He says at $4.00 a gallon, it adds up quickly.
“You get to school you stay at school until you’re done, no coming and going,” said Foley.
And if you think gas prices are high, try filling up from the perspective of a teenager.
“70 hours of babysitting to fill my tank up,” said 16-year-old Maggie Flinn. “It's a lot of money out of your account especially when you work as much as I do.”
But it makes her thankful for all the years her parents drove.
“They definitely have to do a lot of work to fill up their cars and drive my brother and me around,” said Flinn.
As prices continue to rise, both Flinn and Foley know they'll keep driving but say there are ways to cut down.
“9 parents take 9 kids to one stop. We have to end that. And stay as close to where we have to go as possible. Plan and carpool too.” said Foley.
Another number for perspective, in July the average price for a gallon of milk was $3.42.
