Summer Gas Prices Rise
Gas prices rapidly spiked in the last week
ANCHORAGE - Alaskans are once again feeling the pain at the pump, as gas prices spiked over the last few days.
Others aren’t so surprised.
“I’m not surprised; Alaska is in the pockets of oil companies,” said Susannah Numme, another Anchorage driver.
There’s not much drivers can do to control the price. But they are coming up with creative ways to relieve some of that pain.
“Now a lot of people are keeping them full, they don't know what the next day will bring,” said Brent Robb, a sales manager at Tesoro.
They’re also finding other means of transportation, until the numbers hopefully go down.
“I’m putting my bike rack on and going to pick up my bike where it's being tuned up,” said Numme.
