Mexican officials say three inmates are dead following a fight between rival gangs at a prison in Ciudad Juarez, a city across the border from El Paso, Texas. The prosecutors' office in the border state of Chihuahua said Thursday that authorities had called in the army and National Guard to control the fight. The office said the dispute at the Number 3 prison was between “rival gangs,” but did not identify which groups were involved. Ciudad Juarez has seen years of battles between gangs like the Artistas Asesinos, backed by the Sinaloa cartel, and the La Linea and Aztecas gangs and the Juarez cartel.

Gas prices hit record highs just two months ago, but now they're sinking below $4 a gallon. The auto club and insurer AAA said Thursday that the nationwide average price was $3.99 a gallon. There are several factors behind the dramatic drop, and the biggest is a sharp pullback in oil prices. The price of benchmark U.S. crude is down about one-fourth from its peak. Investors bidding down the price of oil are worried that the global economy is shaky, and that demand for energy will get weaker.
