High Gas Prices Affect Oxford, MS

Gas prices continue to rise and recently exceeded 4 dollars a gallon in Oxford, MS. Fortunately, Oxford and the rest of Mississippi are currently below the national average of $4.25 per gallon for premium gasoline. The rise in gas prices definitely hasn't helped the economic recovery, but the United States aren't the only ones hurting from the increase in price per barrel of oil. On other continents, such as Europe, gas prices are way worst than what it is in America. In London, gas was reported at $8.17 a gallon in March and has risen since.
So how does Oxford, MS respond to all of this? Many residents have been forced to find new ways of transportation without it putting a toll on their wallet. Buses, bicycles, and walking have been the preference but many still consider other tips for saving on gas.
