Letter To The Editor: High Local Fuel Prices

By ALLEN COGBILL
Los Alamos

Buy local? Perhaps not, at least when it comes to purchasing fuel.

Fuel prices in Los Alamos presently bottom out at 255.9¢/gal (it’s very slightly lower in White Rock), with Smith’s MarkupPlace apparently setting the prevailing price. In contrast, in Pojoaque the price is 219.9¢/gal and just slightly further east, at Nambé Falls Travel Center, the price is only 200.9¢/gal!

While I’m not suggesting that residents make special trips to the valley to purchase fuel, it may be cost-effective to plan to purchase fuel elsewhere as long as prices stay
high in Los Alamos, as the price differences are remarkably large.
