“We’re going to be at home mostly. I don’t think we’re going to be traveling that much,” said Marquez. 

And a big question that still stands is how high will gas get?

“That’s up 21 cents in the last week and if we keep going at that rate, could we reach $5 a gallon in the next two weeks? I hate to think about it but it’s not out of the realm of possibilities,” said Noble.
