EL PASO - The price of gas is 45 cents higher than it was a month ago, according to the senior petroleum analyst at Elpasogasprices.com.
A local car dealership says it's noticing a spike in customers trading their gas guzzlers for something that wastes less gas, like a hybrid.
Hybrid cars are reported to get up to 15 more miles per gallon than a purely gasoline powered car.
