In Houston where I used to live, there was a gas station on every corner and all along the freeways. The prices between stations would fluctuate by maybe a few cents per gallon. Here in Albuquerque, there aren’t as many gas stations and the prices can fluctuate by 10 cents or more. (I also saw a cash-only price yesterday of $1.92 per gallon.)
The government in Santa Fe doesn’t know what to do about the low price of oil, since this state’s revenue depends on it. Political pundits like to guess at how much revenue the state is losing every day… seems illogical to depend on the price of oil for something as important as revenue. (But what do I know.)
In other news, Governor Martinez was in Hawaii last week raising money for the GOP.
