Gas Prices Help Area State Park

Higher gas prices helped send a record number of people to one area state park this summer.

An administrator at Black Mesa State Park in Cimarron County says more people from the five state region made the shorter drive to the park, as opposed to taking longer trips.

The four year old park saw especially high numbers of campers for Labor Day weekend, the traditional end of summer.

On Memorial Day weekend, the traditional start of summer, campers almost filled the park to capacity.
