"I got out of my bed this morning, got in my car and turned the key. Then I called outta work and I went back into bed, because the needle was on 'E.' I can't afford my gasoline. The prices have become obscene. They're up five cents a day. Who has that kind of green? I can't afford my gasoline."

Co-anchor Rene Syler then showed some T-shirts poking fun at the situation.

"I'm on the gas can diet. I can either eat or drive," read another.
And the last one she showed has an image of a gas pump nozzle, with the words, "Arm and a leg."
