Will rising gas prices keep you from filling up?

By Bonnie Shelton

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW)--The trouble in Libya and other Mid East countries impacts your pocket book. None more so than gas prices.

Rising gas prices have some drivers fuming. "With the economy the way it is I think this is kind of ridiculous to be honest with you," said Jacqueline Dijou from Rib Mountain.

According to Gasbuddy.com the state average is 3.39 a gallon.At some places in Rib Mountain and Wausau, it's 3.45.

Gas prices have risen 19 cents over the past week, but most people say that won't keep them from driving. However, higher gas bills can lead to higher stress levels, especially for the unemployed.

David Treu offered some advice, "I run mine to half a tank and then fill up. That way it doesn't cost so much."

The real question is, when will gas prices rise too high for drivers?
