Iowa motorists are feeling the pain at the pump. Gas prices in many cities have jumped between 20 and 40-cents a gallon in the past two days, while some areas of the state are seeing their first-ever prices at three-bucks a gallon. This Davenport man says he’s making the trip to Milan, Illinois, to fuel up his S-U-V.He says it’s worth it to save the money, usually ten-cents a gallon. This Quad Cities woman says she’s worried about having enough money to buy groceries.She says she goes to the store, gets what she needs and hopes there’s enough to last the month or she’ll just have to limit her travels. This man says she’s had to cut back on everything else. The man says he works out of his truck and he’s spending 50-dollars a week for regular unleaded. He says the bounding gas prices have cut into the family’s entertainment and travel budget. A spokeswoman for Triple-A-Iowa says motorists should not fill up if they don’t need to, as that could cut into supply and send prices still-higher.
