The increase in gas prices has caused University of La Verne students to budget their already limited funds, and for some to find alternative means of transportation.

With a state average price of $3.68 for the lowest octane, commuting students and employees find the drive to La Verne more burdensome than ever before.

“As a commuter I spend a lot of money on gas and food but with the current increase of gas, I literally have to choose from eating or putting gas in my car,” said Claudia Gonzalez, a senior business major.

There has been a 42-cent increase at the pump since this time last year and there is speculation that gas prices are still on their way up.
