Anderson, who represents the southeast portion of San Diego County, said many of his constituents have little choice but to drive to work and reported that he has received more than 2,000 calls about gas prices.

“The rising fuel price is really crushing my district,” Anderson said. “A lot of the folks who live in my district work in construction, and they couldn’t possibly take public transportation, no matter how they tried, because that’s not how they get to their workplace. When you look at people who live in more rural places, whether it’s Ramona or Pine Valley, it’s unfair to expect them to have these gas prices and keep their household budgets together.”
