    When Jay Ricker, owner of the BP filling station off Interstate 70 in Plainfield, Ind., set the price of unleaded gasoline at $3.44 per gallon on Monday of last week, it was 4 cents higher than the Friday before.

    That alone might have been irritating to drivers paying the highest gas prices in more than two years. It was even more so because it happened on a day when the price of crude oil, which is used to make gasoline, fell almost $1 a barrel.

    Gary, who made 11 of 13 free-throw attempts for the Lobos (20-11, 8-8 Mountain West), turned his right ankle midway through the first half. The three minutes it took to be taped up accounted for all of his time off the court.
