How Fresno State students deal with fuel costs - Shannon Handy, KFSN Fresno, CA

The Dream Act is just one of many issues students are struggling with. Another big concern is raising fuel costs. Across much of the state, prices are very near the $4.00 mark. Right now in Merced, drivers are paying an average of $3.94. Visalia has the highest price in our area, at $3.95. And it's just two-cents cheaper in Fresno. Like many CSU campuses, Fresno State is a large commuter school. Campus officials estimate 9,000 people drive to class each day. Now, with gas prices at $4.00 a gallon, students say they are finding ways to switch up their routines.
Commuting to and from Fresno State together has become a daily routine for Sergio Donato and Mohannad Musleh of Chowchilla.
