Rising gas prices affect spring break plans - Hanah Cho, The Baltimore Sun

For her last spring break next week, Morgan State University senior Tenisha Duke planned a road trip to Florida with friends, the eight of them packed in two cars. That way, they could split the cost of gas.But when violence broke out half a world away, sending gas prices here soaring, even that strategy wasn't frugal enough for Duke. She will be spending her break at her District of Columbia home instead of the beach."I'll be home," said Duke, who spends $80 a week on gas to commute to Morgan State's North Baltimore campus. "And that will save me gas money for the week."
