Unhappy Pumpers

You've no doubt noticed it. Gas prices continue to go up all around north-central Wisconsin.

In Wausau, they're only within a few cents of $2 per gallon.

We headed out to an area gas station to find out just how disgruntled the rising prices are making area drivers.

"The gas prices today are pretty high compared to what we're used to, but I've traveled around Europe, and it's still less expensive than it is for the Europeans," said driver George Goyke.

"I think it's kind of crazy, but I guess it's better than Germany or France. They're paying four bucks or whatever," said Corey Moser, driver.

"Very disappointed. It's too bad we have both a president and an administration that is beholden to the oil industry," said Jeff Gast, who believes the Bush administration is at least partially to blame for the high gas prices.

Experts say Wisconsin is headed for an all-time high in gas prices this year.

The record is $1.95 per gallon. Today's state average price is $1.92.
