News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Gas Prices Cheaper in Mexico

Desert Southwest Residents Taking Advantage of Lower Prices

Gas prices in the Imperial Valley are inching their way closer to $4.50 a gallon.

With prices soaring so high some drivers are heading south not only to visit family and friends, but to fill their tanks.

Brenda Velasquez drives an suv. She says she gets more bang for her buck at this Pemex gas station in Mexicali.

"Before i would pay $60 and it would fill up over there. Now i put $60 and it doesn't even fill up half a tank. Here with 600 pesos i fill my tank," she said.

Gas prices at a Pemex station near the border are about $3.25 a gallon for premium and $2.85 a gallon for the equivalent of regular unleaded.
