It's costing more to fuel your car and now it's costing more to cool your car.
Lubbock automotive shops are starting to feel the effects of a nationwide freon shortage. "Prices have already started rising dramatically and they say it will get worse by the end of the summer," Joel Prock, owner of Prock Automotive said.
Prock says the cost of freon has doubled in the past few months. The shortage affects freon used in cars, made after 1993. So, if you need to add freon to your car, expect to pay double what you have been paying.
