High gas prices
Renee Simon of Port Arthur fills the tank of her Honda del Sol at Fast Lane No. 27 in Groves on Tuesday, July 12, 2005. Although the gas station is down the street from a Total Petrochemical refinery, the price of a gallon of fuel was similar to other retailers around the Golden Triangle. Gas prices across the U.S. are at new record highs.
