FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - As tensions in the Middle East and North Africa continue to rise so does the price of gas around the country and here in the Summit City.

By 2:00 p.m. gas prices settled at $3.55.

Elijah Tanner shares a feeling with many people that Indiana's NewsCenter talked to today. He says, "Man I think these gas prices are pretty bogus just for the simple fact, you know, I got a family to support as well as put gas in my vehicle to get to and from work. You know, I'm able to do both but like at the same time, if it's going to keep going up, what am I going to have to choose? Putting my gas in my car or supporting my family? You know what I'm saying? They need to do something about these prices man. They're getting outrageous."

Other folks said they'll be cutting vacations short or cutting them altogether. Some looking for today's gas bargain are choosing to stay at home and cook meals as opposed to going out.

With little end in sight to tensions in the Middle East and North Africa, gas prices aren't expected to drop any time soon.
