Granted, prices have fallen a bit lately but we still pretty much always do.  Why?

El Paso almost always has the highest average price in Texas, but I've never understood why.

It's always much cheaper in Mexico ... couldn't we just truck our own over?

Even NEW Mexico tends to be cheaper.  Can we bring theirs over?  It's all the same stuff right??

As far as shipping goes, it's not like it travels far anyway. We have a freakin' refinery here!  I know, I've seen it!  (And can usually smell it when I'm in central.)

Can anyone explain to me why El Chuco always gets "hosed" at the pump?
