The rising cost of fuel is causing more pain at the pump. With Easter Sunday approaching, many drivers here are cringing at the inevitability of four dollars for a gallon of regular unleaded. Now, some residents are going the extra mile to make sacrifices. Students at Creighton University are also feeling the impact of skyrocketing gas prices. Economist Ernie Goss says some on campus might have to cut back on the number of times they return home per semester. Goss adds the reason students are getting forced into these tough decisions is primarily due to conflict in the Middle East and our own economy. "As the dollar goes down in value, that pushes up the price of oil and gasoline."
