Indiana residents and businesses are starting to feel the pinch of rising gas prices, prompting some companies and even non-profits to being weighing whether to raise their own prices or cut back on deliveries.
The Flower Shop general manager George Litherland says the Evansville company's gas bill went up by $200 last month. He's thinking about consolidating deliveries to save on gas but may raise delivery costs if gas prices continue to rise.
Evansville Meals on Wheels executive director Myrrl Choate tells the Evansville Courier & Press that if gas prices keep rising the group will have to consider cutting back its routes delivering meals to local seniors.
She says in less than two weeks, the weekly cost of gas for one 23-mile route climbed from $34 to $47.
