Wheezing Sound when Accelerating

My car's engine noise is getting to be more prominent. When I accelerate it sounds like wheezing or air rushing by. My MPG has gone down to 21-22MPG. It was never above 24 but never this low.
Any ideas?

Re: Wheezing Sound when Accelerating

My car currently has an exhaust leak in the flex piece right before the catalytic converter. Loss of mpgs, super loud(its been going on for a while), and weird idling(wheezing maybe?). I've heard its a common problem, maybe you should check to see if that is the problem.
