Pilots and airport businesses are criticizing a plan to spend $1 million to upgrade the fuel storage tanks at Las Cruces International Airport in New Mexico. Officials say that the five existing fuel tanks do not meet state regulations. "I believe they could modify the existing storage area, and bring it into compliance, at a far less cost than the city wants to spend now," said Hal Kading, owner of Southwest Aviation, the airport's only fixed-base operator.
