The steep hike in gas and fuel prices has all kinds of negative implications for our nation’s seniors. It’s bad enough for those older Americans with jobs who need their cars to get to work. It’s even worse for seniors on fixed incomes who have to pay more for their food because of higher transportation costs.
High gas prices are forcing people to make some tough choices as the average price per gallon is climbing over $4. Some seniors say they’re even giving up expensive medicine and limiting trips to the doctor to stay on budget.
