High fuel prices hurt families

WASHINGTON - As gasoline prices hover above $4 per gallon, it is not surprising that people in Michigan's First District are both frustrated and concerned. There is no doubt that fuel prices this high are hurting families in Northern Michigan. Every dollar families have to put in their gas tank is one that they don't spend at the local grocery store, on a family vacation, or on their children's education. In an economy that is still very weak, higher gas prices are putting a strain on our local businesses that could mean the difference between staying open for business or closing your doors permanently.
