Gas prices hurt taxicab drivers

Albany- Lee Peterson says it used to cost him $23 to fill up, now he pays almost $35. On a busy day he gases up three to four times.

Still he's determined not to pass the cost on to customers.

"You can't hurt the customers because gas is high. It's not their fault. I'm just appreciative of picking them up and taking them where they need to go," Peterson says.

Taxicab owners say they're hoping for relief soon because they're losing a lot of their customers to the city's transit system.
