EL PASO – There's more pain at the pump.
Gas prices in El Paso jumped 2 cents in the past week. Regular unleaded now averages $2.99 a gallon.
Folks in the area are not taking well to the hike. Valerie Acosta is a practitioner who travels to New Mexico to work. She said she may have to work closer to home if prices keep rising.
“I probably will stop doing clinic in Las Cruces and just stay closer because it will definitely affect me,” said Acosta.
Gas prices across the nation now average $3.12 a gallon-- that's 13 cents higher than El Paso.
