Ask most Americans what their top worry is and they're likely to tell you gasoline, according to a new survey from the Kaiser Family Founation.
With gas prices skyrocketing, consumers have found themselves paying through the 'hose,' with 44 percent of Americans describing purchasing fuel is a "serious problem."
"The higher the fuel price, the higher that everything else is gonna go," ABC quoted one consumer.
As of Monday the average price of gas is $3.60, according to the Energy Department.
But people aren't just worried about gas.
Twenty nine percent of adults said that landing a good paying job is also a concern, followed by health care at 28 percent, and paying rent or mortgage at 19 percent.
Many say they've resorted to putting off getting healthcare. And close to a quarter of participants said they skipped a recommended test or treatment altogether.
The Kaiser poll surveyed 2,003 adults from April 3-13, with a sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
