Drivers feeling pinch at the pump as gas prices continue to rise


Gas prices are continuing to rise all across the nation and that trend doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon.

According to AAA, Tuesday was the 33rd straight day that the national average for gas has risen. In Illinois, prices have spiked nearly 70 cents in the past month. With Quincy prices currently sitting at $3.89 a gallon since Friday, local drivers say they are really starting to feel the pain at the pump.

"It's costing too much, it'd probably be about $80-90 to fill it up."

"Quarter of a tank to half, that's about all I can afford at one time."

Experts don't believe the pain at the pump will let up anytime soon, and prices are expected to get worse as we head into the summer driving season.
