Gas prices are high even for the chair of the House budget committee, apparently.

Rep. Paul Ryan recounted a story of how he and his children were driving to go skiing in northern Wisconsin recently. When he stopped to fill up with gas, he reached the maximum purchase that the gas station would allow on a credit card (typically $75).

“I can’t even fill up my truck any more because of gas prices,” Ryan laughed in an interview with The Daily Caller. “You have to put a new credit card in the system if you actually want to top it off.”

Look for the full interview with Rep. Ryan Monday morning.
