EL PASO-- Gasoline prices are rising.

There's nothing under $3 in the Borderland.

Right now, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.39, and that's the highest price yet in January.

Experts say they predict much higher prices by the summer travel season, well above $4 a gallon.

“Here lately, we are the only people we know paying under $3 for gas, in like four different states,” said Tiffany Armer, a driver. “We are the only ones. Now to hear we are going to pay more than them, I want to cry.”

High crude prices are to blam for higher prices at the pump. Also, the government's repeal of ethanol fuel credits.

These increases in gas prices would not be too much of a problem for us in ELP if 1) the personal income of ELP residents was higher 2) the city would offer a faster more efficient mass transportation system like a light rail line or the likes of it. You don't see people in NYC or even Chicago worry too much about this (gas prices going up), since both cities offer better pay and excelent mass transportation systems.

Get rid of idiot Obama and the liberals running this country into the ground. Conservatives wants to drill, liberals do not.
