Denise Humburg fills her car up twice a week and with a family of seven Humburg says she's really feeling the pain at the pump.
" I was out of work for almost six months, so our pay was cut a lot. Now the gas prices are going so much higher then they were. It's tough," said Humburg.
The tough part is Humburg is recovery from back surgery. She now has to travel from Ozark to Dothan for doctor's appointments.
Humburg says the 25-mile trip has her spending more money for gas and cutting back in other areas.
" Less trips to beach, cut back every corner you can. You buy less product, instead of the major brand you buy the Wal-Mart brand," said Humburg.
Valencia Mullins says she's also cutting back. The high gas prices have her budgeting things a bit differently now.
" It effects my life. I have to cut down on leisurely spending, because the bills got to get paid and gas is now a bill," said Mullins.
At $3.31 a gallon people are looking for any way to save a dollar at the pump and for some that means trading in their cars for cheaper modes of transportation.
That's exactly what Ryan Reddings did. He drives his motorcycle as often as possible.
" I can fill it up at $16 dollars. If I filled it up at $16 dollars I can probably drive around on it for a week in a half," explained Redding.
Reddings says that's significantly less then what he pays when he drives his car.
" I drive a Honda Accord, it will take about $40 or $50 dollars to fill that up now. At $3.31 a gallon, it's just cheaper," said Reddings.
With gas prices inching towards the four dollar mark, people say they're expecting to shell out a lot of cash.
