You probably noticed a big jump in gas prices Wednesday. They were already going up and Isaac only made the problem worse.
According to GasBuddy.com, we're paying an average of $3.86 a gallon in Georgia.
Driver William Phillips says filling up at the pump lately has been a nightmare.
"These gas prices are ridiculous. They're going up by minutes," said Phillips.
He fills up on a weekly basis as he travels daily out of town to go to work.
"It's killing me. It's killing me. I'm dying a slow death over here because of gas prices," said Phillips.
"It's painful to me like it is to many others," said driver Chris Berry.
Berry is also feeling the pain at the pump as he too fills up his truck every week with more expensive diesel.
"That's once a week provided I don't do any extracurricular activities. So about $75 per week," said Berry.
Darton State College Economist Aaron Johnson says the spike is caused by supply and demand.
With speculation that refineries along the gulf coast will be damaged because of Hurricane Isaac, drivers are hitting the pumps even more.
"There are two factors. There's potential damage to refineries that's going to make it harder for them to transport gas and also people buying gas more than they usually do," said Johnson.
"I really feel for the less fortunate, if you will, that really struggle to make," said Berry.
One driver we spoke with says there's nothing to do but bear it.
"I mean it really doesn't matter what it gets up to, we're still going to have to have to put the gas in the things and drive them," said Mack Gidden.
Drivers hope these prices will come down soon, but there might not be much hope for prices falling soon as the Labor Day holiday approaches.
