But so far, they’re holding back from passing the costs on to customers. Doc Cross – a delivery driver for Steve’s Place Pizza on Howe Avenue in Sacramento – says that could change if prices don’t go down soon. 

"If people aren’t going out because they don’t want to pay for high gas then we probably will see more deliveries and if we see more deliveries then we will probably end up having to do something to compensate us for the price of gas." 

AAA says the average price for a gallon of gas in the Sacramento area is $3.05, up from $2.57 a month ago.
