Small Businesses Struggle With Recession, Gas Prices

According to AAA, the average gasoline price in the U.S. is $3.86 a gallon. Last month, Tell Me More spoke with Edgardo Castro, whose small trucking operation was struggling because of high gas prices. Now prices are even higher — nearly 50 cents more per gallon. Host Michel Martin checks in with Castro and with Roben Farzad of Bloomberg Businessweek about what rising gas prices mean for the U.S. economy and American business owners.
