Regular unleaded is $2.69/gal this morning at Stripes and $2.74 at the Valero store. Statewide the average of all stations is $3, which is a healthy drop from the $3.40’s of mid-summer. According to Texas New Service the even better news is that gas mileage has improved in the cars and trucks we drive too. The

Around 7:30pm last evening the Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office got a call from Lometa, reporting an incident with a BNSF train that was passing through Lometa. 
A Lometa pedestrian, 27 yr old David Allen Sutton, evidently fell partially under the train, severed an arm and seriously injured a leg. A Scott and White helicopter evacuated the injured man from Lometa Regional Park and took him to the Temple hospital. He had been discovered along the track by passing pedestrians and sketchy information seems to point to his possibly trying to “jump” the train and slipped off, but that has not been confirmed.
