Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Paying for gas is one of those necessary evils that comes along with driving a car. No matter how much it is, we usually end up having to fork out the cash.
"I guess if we want to ride, we'll have to pay whatever it costs," said Martha Logan, a woman getting gas.
It is the price of us living in the fast lane.
"We are definitely dependent on gas," said Ellen Ardis, another woman at the gas station.
With the pipeline spill in Alabama affecting gas stations all the way here to the Palmetto state, stations all across the midlands saw a price increase.
"It's hit a pocket book pretty good," Ardis said.
