Kentucky State Police will be limiting patrols because of high gasoline prices.
Lieutenant Phil Crumpton confirms that all posts are now asked to scale back fuel use by at least 10 percent.
Crumpton says state police have as many as a thousand cars on the road everyday. He says no services or call responses will be cut.
Troopers are being urged to park and observe locations, keep vehicles in good running order, carpool to meetings and observe the speed limit.
