Prices grew so high that people in Alabama were going through extreme measures just to avoid the gas pump.

Would you ride a horse to work if it meant you didn't have to visit the gas pump and pay close to $5 a gallon? What about the grocery store?

There was someone in Alabama who decided to ride a horse to Dollar General instead of using a vehicle and I can't blame them.

Much more efficient.
