CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — While Timothy Overton pumping gas into his tractor-trailer, he was paying close attention. The price at the pump, keeps going up and up.
"It was about $200, now it's about $400, "said Overton about the price of filling up his truck. "I've got a small tank, but the big tanks it was $700-$800. Every day it goes up more and more."
Gas is just one factor when it comes to inflation.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the average price of a gallon of gas, nationally, has shot up over $0.62 a gallon, according to AAA.
"I know that everything is going to be going up. I ain't got no choice. We shop and I'm watching. The the food goes up, what are you gonna do," asked Overton.
