Mo' money mo' money

A girl that works with me asked for a raise yesterday. She's a pretty unreliable and half-assed employee so she was told no. But that's not what matters.

Her reason for wanting a raise was that gas prices are going up and it's costing her more to drive to and from work. Do you think that's a just reason to ask for a raise? This isn't some serious careeeer or anything.. sort of a gourmet food shop. We don't have benefits or whatnot. She only works four days a week and shows up a few hours late to those anyways.

So. Even if she was just a awesome model employee, would it still be a just reason to ask for a raise? Please explain why/why not.

Oh and my answer is no because she 1. chose to work here knowing how far away it is, 2. this isn't a permanent cost-of-living/inflation issue, and 3. drives a goddamn 8-cylinder truck everywhere despite only using it for basic day-to-day purposes (ie she doesn't haul things, race, or off-road).
