(KSL News) Roads in Utah County may suffer because of the rising cost of asphalt.
Last night the county commission approved the purchase of 6,000 tons of asphalt to fill potholes, at the cost of $250,000.
That is up 36 percent from last year.
Officials say if the price continues to rise they may have to cut back on the number of potholes filled or figure out a way to recycle asphalt for the projects.
