Community members make adjustments to save money to offset high gas prices

Many people are choosing not to fill their tanks all the way as a result of being unsure of how much a full tank will cost. Read Now “There are a lot of people who come in and will just pay for half a tank because they want to limit how much they spend on gas since it is very expensive right now,” Luedders said. “Gas right now is $2.69 and diesel is $2.99, almost $3.”

“I would say that with gas prices going up it’s harder for me as a student to support myself with rent because I do like to go home to Kansas City to see my family. It really makes me think about if I can afford it that week,” Conley said. Devin Conley, senior in kinesiology, finds this increase in price is making it more difficult for some students to choose between traveling back home or using the money to pay for overall normal expenses.

Related:Campus Police Activity: March 22 to April 4 “People come in and say they want $20 in gas when gas was almost under $2 a gallon. Now people come in and don’t even know how much it will cost to fill up their car,” Luedders said. “Customers will ask us, but we don’t know either.”

“Even though I work, it cost me $50 to fill up my gas tank, and it’s really hard to do that every other week, financially,” Conley said. “For me, a whole tank of gas is five hours of work and $50 every couple of weeks could be my groceries or part of my rent or a whole utility bill.” Even with a 40-cent difference between diesel and gasoline, gas prices still affect students such as Luedders. Some students try to limit their amount of driving so they do not have to fill up as often. Conley finds it hard to spend the money it takes to pay for a full tank of gas in her vehicle every other week when she has other expenses that she could be using the money for.

“I DoorDash four to five days a week, and while I do get decent miles per gallon, I’m definitely going to the pump more than ever. I’ve probably doubled the amount of trips I make to the gas station on a given month,” Blandi said. Tevis Blandi, junior in business administration, said he noticed the increase since working for DoorDash because he has to fill his tank more often than in the past.
