Regardless of the high gas prices, I hope you and your friends are still having a good time on your road trip!
Gas prices are rising across the country. Here’s why gas is so expensive in New Mexico right now:
  • Policy changes
  • Fossil fuel supply
  • Increased demand
Due to climate change-related new taxes and regulations on top of supply-chain disruptions caused by COVID-19, New Mexicans have seen gas prices increase over the last several months. But they’re actually not as high as many other states—be happy you’re not road tripping in California!
