"I don't know what the government expects us to do. My buddy here, you know, he drives every day and we can't afford to keep this up. We might as well just quit our job and go on welfare," said driver Josh Slone.

AAA says the national gas price average is up 12 cents in 14 days. The last time travelers have seen gas prices this high on Memorial Day weekend was four years ago in 2014.
