If it weren't for the police parking in their usual spot drivers would continuously speed through. There are a ton of schools in the El Paso Independent School District and shared school zones that are typically ignored. Below is a gallery of pictures I took of the school zones that are ignored by some drivers.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
