Sports teams are among those affected by the high gas prices, and analysts say this could be the most expensive year yet.

Prices are up 38 cents since the beginning of July.

Analysts say the combination of the national drought, increased production costs, and crude oil prices are the causes.

School officials say cutbacks are being made.

“You just have to do little things like check your efficiency of your routes, and make sure you’re not overlapping runs and routes. Or that you don’t hav two or three drivers going up the same road,” said
Transportation Director Bart Williams.

Gas prices are 10 cents higher right now than last year's average.
