High gas prices forcing some to pawn their favorite things

Pumped up gas prices are forcing some Mid-Southerners to pawn their favorite things.

At least one Arkansas Pawn shop manager said she has never seen such an increase in business as she has within the past year.

She said when gas goes up, business goes up.

"You have to have gas to go to work and that's the only way to get there is with gas and so there's really nothing you can do," Christy Dubar of Express Pawn said.

"There's really not anything really that can help with the gas. I mean you just got to bite it and do what you gotta do," Michael Pawn said. He had just finish pawning goods for gas money.

It is going to cost even more this summer.

Oil analysts predict prices could climb another 30 cents a gallon in the next few weeks.
