Northeastern Oklahoma drivers may experience a little shock at the gas pump. Gas is now at record high prices.
A gallon of gas went up to $2.13 at many stations around Tulsa Wednesday night. Everyone will feel the pinch. But the price jump is especially hard on those who drive for a living.
Taxi cab drivers like Keith Smith pay for their own gas and higher prices can really cut into their profits. "It gets real discouraging and thatâ€™s when you have to really push hard and drive many more hours than you really want to."
Cab drivers have a guaranteed fare of $3.50. If they get only that minimum amount, they have to make at least 10 runs just to pay for that day's gas.
