Some California residents are taking advantage of the cheaper gas prices in Mexico by dashing across the border for fuel.

Gas prices at this station are about 3.25 a gallon for premium and 2.85 a gallon for the equivalent of regular unleaded.

A Pemex in Mexicali sees a daily parade of cars filling up with California license plates.
These drivers say they'd rather fill up in Mexico even though they feel the quality of the gas may not be equal to it's American counterpart.
