Gas prices set back students - AnaJaye’ Diggs, Otterbein 360

Gas prices don't just affect professionals on their daily commute to work. Many Otterbein commuters have been hit by the recent steep increase in gas prices. Some commuter students adjusted their schedules around the spike in gas prices. Sophomore music performance major Agnes Hayes comes to campus five days a week and sometimes on weekends. "I stay on campus more so I don't have to pay for gas. I try to get everything done within the five days as much as possible," she said. The social lives of students have also taken a hit because driving isn't always an option. Sophomore biology major Mary Holmquist said, "I don't go anywhere besides school and work."
