For the longest time, I have come across different El Paso drivers who are sometimes confused about how lanes worked. It was to the point they almost caused an accident because of it.

See, some El Paso drivers tend to confuse the turning lane and assume it is to continue straight. But I noticed something the other day that I have been saying for the longest time now that has finally happened.

There may have been enough complaints about that road that they finally did something about it. It seems they painted the road with white lines to show where each lane goes. I am definitely rejoicing since I use that road often it gets annoying when other drivers mistake your lane for theirs.

This just has me wondering if there are any other roads in El Paso that need helpful tips too. Clearly, there needs to be an extra driving course refresher on roundabouts in El Paso.

Another problem some El Paso drivers have is the stop sign dead center on Van Buren Ave. near Aloha Tan. Now, those turning right on VAN Buren from Gateway S. Blvd. have the stop sign.

But there must be other roads you think other El Paso drivers could benefit from with some helpful tips. I am certainly excited about the newly painted white lines which will hopefully help avoid accidents.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
