High gas prices lead Kentucky State Police to cut back on patrols

High gas prices are forcing the Kentucky State Police to cut back on patrols.  But -- beware there will be more checkpoints.

High gas prices are the reason for the new strategy.  Police announced beginning July 4th, and running until Labor Day, troopers will be patrolling less to save on gas.

Instead, police will have an increased number of sobriety checkpoints.

KSP officials say the department used 6% less gas in May this year compared to last year.  But they still spent $132,000 more for the high price of gas.
