Restaurants Feel Pinch From Pump

Money only goes so far, so high gas prices are hurting some businesses. From Fox 28:
As gas prices continue to rise, more people are looking for ways to save some cash. It appears that in addition to limiting how much they drive, people are not eating out as much.

One restaurant in Elkhart is starting to feel the pinch.

Peggy Flora, Manager at Callahan's says, "Maybe 10 to 20 percent right now, if it continues going up, it's going to be more."

According to Flora, that's how much business has dropped since gas prices started going up.

Gas prices in Michiana are ranging between $3.30 and $3.40 a gallon which means people are looking for ways to save.
Well it is only expected people to stop spending for extras when they have to break the bank for high gas prices. I really want a Prius!
