A Mechanic’s Perspective On Gas Prices

I see my mechanic a lot because my car is always breaking down.

I spoke to him this week about the effect of gas prices.

He lives in Sherman Oaks and works in zip code 90035.

He said that a year ago, it took him 90 minutes to get home at night. Since gas prices skyrocketed, it’s taken him about 40 minutes, on average, to get home.

He said that when gas prices hit $3 a gallon, his shop did not get its first call that Saturday until 3 pm.

Business has been way down because of higher gas prices.
