I live in Northern California, west of Sacramento. Yesterday AM on way to work gas was $4.15. On the way home PM it was $4.39. Won't be doing any extra going anywhere!

It won't effect me that much because I don't have everyday driving I have to do and can easily combine my trips. The gas price is just the tip of it. Everything will be more expensive following a gas price increase. I am shocked the cost increase of food in just a few weeks. I noticed a bag of Doritos were $4.89 yesterday at the local grocery. I have a bag that has been in my pantry since before Christmas (grands left them here) the bag price was $2.79. ??? Who will pay $5 for a bag of chips? I feel really worried about all this for so many that are not and cannot get prepared for the drastic increase of prices.
