Gas prices hurt drug dealers, too

Strike one against Anthony Salinas was selling cocaine to undercover officers.

Strike two was charging extra to recoup gas money for dropping off the drugs.

Indiana police say they set up two buys with Salinas, where he was to drop off a quarter-ounce of coke in parking lots at Starbucks and Bass Pro Shops. Salinas charged $240 -- $215 for the drugs and $25 for gas money. (The Smoking Gun has the charging docs.)

Darn gas prices make times tough for everybody. But with two felony drug charges against him, Salinas may be going somewhere where he won't have to drive for a while.
