High gas bills force Galveston changes

June 23, 2008 8:09:37 PM PDT
The city of Galveston has launched a new plan hoping to cut back on whopping fuel bills. The plan bans personal use and unnecessary travel in city vehicles. No one can take home vehicles if they live off the island. Police officers patrolling the densest parts of Galveston will double up cars and all officers must park their units and turn off the engine for 45 minutes per shift.

Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas says the city may soon go $800,000 over its fuel budget.
