High gas prices hurting Guadalupe County
Selena Hernandez: KENS 5 Eyewitness News
Gas prices are on the verge of fueling the county's budget into overdrive.
"As gas prices climb, that might throw us into a bind," Sheriff Arnold Zwicke said.
"We'll pull from reserves or we're going to have to cut other parts of our budget to allow money to go into the gas line," he said.
"As prices rise, so will the theft rise, and we need to be out there taking care of business on a daily basis," he said.
"There are some times when someone may just have a question about something that can be resolved over the phone," Zwicke said.
