It costs John DeCicco $300 to fill his tow truck with half a tank of gas.
"I'm probably going to spend another $900 to fill up from the weekend," DeCicco said.
He's got 15 other trucks to fill up.
"I could buy a house with what I spend on fuel last year," DeCicco said.
Just how much did he spend? Over $100,000 spent on gas alone.
"Spending a lot of money everyday just to keep fleet rolling," DeCicco said.
DeCicco works 7 days a week towing cars around town, but with the record high gas prices he's having to dig deeper into his pockets.
"People don't want to pay to have their cars towed some of our contracts with law enforcement are locked in. The higher the gas goes, the less money we make," DeCicco said.
Almost $5 a gallon to fill up your tank with premium gas, at least at this station, and the prices look similar across the board.
"I live pay check to paycheck it's like robbing Peter to pay Paul. I just don't have the money," Debra Jones said.
Petroleum experts say selling winter blend gasoline could mean cheaper prices at the pump, at least 15 to 20 cents less a gallon.
"I think we'll see some downward movement within next 72 hours."
Many fuming drivers are hoping relief is around the corner, but for now they're doing what they can to avoid the pain at the pump.
