"Eddy County number one in New Mexico for oil production." I would just like to say how happy I am with that news! Gasoline prices have never been lower and the average person can now relax a little at the pump!

NOT!

Once again. The oil production in this area is piped to Navajo Refinery in Artesia or Western in El Paso. It then is sold to Market's in Phoenix and further up. They don't mind paying more. We get most of are gasoline from Houston area or some from Murphy s above Amarillo. Only very little of our oil is burned here because very little is bought from Artesia to fill the gap. And then it is the distributors jacking up the prices of course with over two dollars in taxes per gallon they start high. It is much cheaper to truck fuel in from Houston than buy from Navajo.

Wow, I am surprised by you Michele. Rarely do you make an intelligent remark. You are right on the money with this one. People fail to realize that very few of the consumable goods they buy are produced locally. I remember years ago reading about a town that centered around a paper mill in which all of the paper sold buy local business' was trucked in from out of state. Nothing is ever as simple as it seems.

you may be right. Not too sure but read newspaper art one time that said something like that. I used to work at the refinery so see where the fuel go's to. Spoke to the distributors and found out that most fuel is trucked in. The gas station right across the street from refinery should have the cheapest gas right. Nope it's truck ed in from Houston
