We probably don't have to tell you this one: gas prices are on the rise and they show no sign of slowing down.

AAA reports gas prices have risen for 32 straight days.

Taxi drivers in particular are understandably dismayed, frustrated at those rising gas prices.

In Manhattan, drivers are looking at $4.15 per gallon, and paying $4.45 for premium.

The national average for gas is roughly around $3.73 a gallon, and in places like Hawaii and California we're seeing prices even higher.

Hawaii is the most expensive state to buy gas, averaging $4.29 per gallon.

The cheapest place to buy gas is Wyoming, where they are averaging $3.17 per gallon.

Some taxi drivers say they spend $40, $50, in some cases $60 per day on gasoline.

Other drivers say they're probably going to consider using electric cars, hybrid cars, anything to get a break from the rising gas prices.

"Being in New York, you have access to public transportation. So it's much easier than say being in Los Angeles but the necessity of having a car it is what it is so you are going to have to cope," said Jonathan Meizler.

"I just find that the prices at gas stations are getting out of control and the government is not doing anything about it," said David Jacobs.

When Jacobs was asked about taking public transportation, he says he's not allowed to take the subway, he's actually banned from taking the subway and that's because he's a 9/11 first responder. He has respiratory illnesses, and doctors have essentially banned him from taking the subway because of the air quality down there.

So it just goes to show, people are at the mercy of rising gas prices and if gas prices continue to rise, they really don't have any alternative.
