The jump in crude oil prices caused gas prices to jump.
South Georgia drivers were scrambling Friday for the cheapest gas, as prices went up more than a dime in some places.
The Enmark on North Slappey was $3.83. Woodalls went up to $3.98 and at other places it's just a penny under four dollars. One of the cheapest places was the Enmark on South Slappey where drivers lined up to pay $3.77 per gallon.
"I'm trying to fill up one more time before we hit four dollars," said Monica Nichols.
Some stations saw a jump of 12 cents as oil prices rose.
"Prices are going up and the coast of living is going up, yet the economy doing what it's doing right now nobody is making any more money so it's stagnant," said
And without a raise many people have to do what they can to to fill the tank.
"Bottom line is what I make annually from last year and the year before hasn't changed but yet my entire cost of living has gone up, so it's hitting home," Jason Hough.
Hitting home for Stephanie Harris as well with a job and school, money is tight.
"I know I have to work and I have to go to school so I have to pay for gas, If you want to ride you got to put gas in your car," said Stephanie Harris.
And the way prices are climbing there seems to be no end in sight.
"I literally believe there are so many believe that live paycheck to paycheck, people are going to literally have a tough time getting to work," said Hough.
While many drivers are already having a tough time, there are no good answers for what to do if gas prices hit $5 a gallon by the end of summer.
"I have no Idea I don't know what we'll do," said Nichols.
As gas prices near the four dollar mark at many gas stations in south Georgia it seems as if everyone is trying to fill up before it gets there.
