EL CENTRO — Motorists in Imperial County may experience a bumpier ride in the near future, as the stay-at-home order the governor made in relation to the coronavirus crisis likely will reduce the amount of gasoline being sold.

Road maintenance and construction is largely funded by a portion of fuel taxes, so with less fuel being used by people staying at home, there will be a shortfall going forward.
