The Farmer's Almanac prediction of another bad winter couldn't come at a worse time for local county road commissions.

In the last week, many are finding out that salt prices have jumped drastically. Clinton County Road Commission Managing Director, Joe Pulver, says his salt costs will jump 65 percent this year. That equals an increase of $100,000.

"We feel like we're getting gouged," said Pulver. "It's just a very inopportune time for us."

Pulver says if that number holds, the commission will have to make cuts.
