Bronx drivers feeling the pinch at the pump as gas prices begin to rise

From increasing bus and subway fares to the rise in gas prices, Bronx residents say everything nowadays costs more.

Analysts say the rise in crude oil prices is to blame for the cost of gas, and AAA says this year is worse than ever. Robert Sinclair, of AAA, says the price of gas will exceed $2.05, a record that was hit last May.

With summer on the way, the prices are expected to just continue to go up. Bronx drivers say if that's the case, their summer vacation plans may change.
