Central Ohio drivers were struggling to get ahead as prices at the pump increased.
Dwight Anderson was one of many Ohio drivers suffering from sticker shock. He said the price hike takes the fun out of a road trip.
"A lot of people do travel and do vacations and things like that, so it's hectic when you have to pay more for gas this time of year," Anderson said. "It is what it is."
John Caldwell said that this week it will cost him almost $50 in gas to get to and from work.
"You don't get ahead you just have to say say, 'I'm not eating out this week,'" Caldwell said. "And the fair's around, Oh, I guess we'll only go one day instead of two."
AAA said that problems at Great Lakes refineries bumped up wholesale prices, leading to the price increase. The travel authority said that the price at the pump could continue to rise until the problems are solved.
