Would you risk being kidnapped by a drug lord to save a few bucks on gas? Tons of people in southern Texas say . . . ABSOLUTELY.

According to reports, people in south Texas have been driving across the Mexican border into dangerous border towns because the gas there is around $2.80 a gallon.

And sure, you burn up a lot of gas getting there and waiting in line to get back across the border . . . and yeah, Mexican gas is less clean and leads to more pollution . . . and yes, you might get kidnapped by a drug lord. But cheap gas is cheap gas.
