Monday morning gas prices in central Ohio were around $3.54 a gallon.
But by Tuesday night, some stations were showing prices more than $4 a gallon.
Jody Brown-Spivey is a licensed floral designer and owner of Expressions Floral Design and makes her money delivering flowers with help from her friends.
“I only deliver Gahanna and New Albany. I have 19 other friends that are delivering the rest of the city for me,” she said.
Brown-Spivey belongs to a co-op of Franklin County florists started more than 20 years ago to improve the efficiency for small business owners and save money on gas.
“It is a huge savings. I can't imagine making those deliveries all myself,” she added.
Once a day, she exchanges packages with other florists so that she can stay in the same area.
“Your driver is more efficient as well, because they're doing the same delivery streets everyday instead of trying to find some street out in Grove City or Canal Winchester where you may only go once a month,” said Brown-Spivey.
So when most people see a nearly 50 cent increase in the price for a gallon of gasoline, Brown-Spivey might not notice.
But her driver does.
Scott Michael Conahan uses a company car with gas paid by the business but he has a second job as a pizza delivery driver. In that position, he has to use his own gas.
Filling up twice a week for work means the spikes in gas costs hit him hard.
"I've seen it over $4. I'm fearing $5,” said Conahan.
Conahan said he hopes the bouquet business booms since he needs to count on his day job more than ever.
