Gas prices have risen 14 cents over the last week in the U.S., and things are just as bad right here in Kansas.

Thursday, some stations were as high as $3.50 per gallon, something drivers are not pleased by.

"It's hard on everybody," said David Beals, who drives 20 miles to-and-from work every day.

Mary Story said she saves money in other areas to pay for gas. She said she has a car, she has places to go, and she pays the price.

Rob Duran recently got two new fuel injectors to hopefully get better gas mileage. He joked he may have to get a horse soon, or ride a bicycle to work.

Gary Haag is the owner of Haag Oil Company, and he says crude oil is rising the price of gas. he says the industry hit all time highs two years ago, and prices continue to climb today.

"We heard more complaining when we went over $2," Haag said.

He believes people are used to the rising prices now, and do not complain about it anymore.

He says he knows it must be tough for families, especially with no relief in sight.

"It's only going to get worse," Haag sad.
