Gas Prices Drain Our Wallets and Budgets - the Montclairian

Because most of you have no idea who I am, allow me to preface this article with a very short introduction. I’m a commuter. I drive a black Pontiac G6 from the town of Wyckoff to the campus of Montclair State University five days out of the week. It’s not a large car; my gas tank only holds about 14 gallons of gasoline, yet around 8:45 p.m. last night I found myself surrendering $50 to a man at a Midland Park gas station. This was the first time I had been near a gas station in at least two weeks — and within that time period we’ve seen gas prices climb nearly an entire dollar.
