Washington (AP) What's the biggest economic worry for American families right now? A new survey says it's how to fill up the tank. Paying for gasoline easily tops the list in a new survey from the Kaiser Family foundation.

Then comes getting a good-paying job or raise, paying for health care and health insurance and difficulty paying rent or a mortgage.

About 44 percent of survey participants said paying for gasoline was a “serious problem” for them. Across all income levels, the cost of gas was the most frequently cited economic concern.

As of Monday, the energy department said the price of gas nationally averaged $3.60 a gallon.
