Westchester, Hudson Valley residents pumped up over possible gas hikes

Posted: Updated:

The news that a corroded Alaskan oil pipeline is being shut down for repairs is worrying drivers in Westchester and Hudson Valley already dealing with high gas prices.

Government officials say the Alaskan shutdown shouldn't have a huge impact on gas prices. They say production will be made up by using current U.S. reserves and by imports from other countries. However, residents aren?t buying that and fear the price of gasoline will skyrocket even more.

Some residents say they will walk or take public transportation if gasoline prices get any higher. Others are not willing to give up driving and say they will just have to deal with it.
