High gas prices

I am a young adult living in Oyama and working in Kelowna. These high gas prices honestly affect me a lot, there’s been times where I have to arrange to be picked up for work or stay at a friends in town just so I can get to work in the morning.

Last year it cost me $40 to fill my gas tank, now it takes $70. That’s a $30 jump that plenty of us cannot afford. I’ve had friends who have quit or been fired from their job because they simply cannot afford to show up. I find that the price of gas is absolutely ridiculous.
