We have all run into the problems with gas prices. Even if the rising gas prices did not effect you directly, it did affect your other costs. How can this be avoided? Though it would be tough to change the filter effect that the gas prices may have had on you, it is possible to reduce the amount that you spend on filling up your car. Cans For Gas is a new program at New River that was started by a Student Government Senator Tim Herzog. Herzog is collecting aluminum drink cans to recycle for money. This money is then placed in an account for students. Students just have to bring their issue with gas prices to a teacher or Ben Kramer. The money will then be allotted in the form of gas cards to students who are deemed “in need”. If you want to help bring your empty drink cans to the mall site in Christiansburg between 1:30 and 3:30 on Tuesdays and at the Student Activities Office between 1:30 and 3:30 on Wednesdays.
