People looking toward alternative means of transportation amid gas price spike

MURRAY, KY — Skyrocketing gas prices are an expense you might be budgeting for, especially if you’re thinking of buying a new car.

With the current prices at the pump, it could be another reason to hold off on that purchase.

The folks at Paducah Ford say they’re still recovering from the pandemic, meaning sales are still low. But, they say they could see elevated gas prices affecting business down the road.

Paducah Ford sales manager Paul Stovesand says good gas mileage was a must-have for many people even before the spike in gas prices.
