Gas prices have only continued to rise in recent months, and now they’re past the $5 threshold many Americans were worried about.
While some people are hopeful that their state will cut gas taxes, other cities, like Chicago, are handing out gas and public transit cards to residents.
The AAA has reported that gas prices are already past $5 for the national average, not just in the most expensive states.
With no sign of relief in sight, Americans are trying to figure out how to move ahead with such high prices.
Prices are so high that the IRS even changed its mileage deduction amount mid-year.
