SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A company has plans to build a 430-mile pipeline to transport gasoline from Salt Lake City refineries to Las Vegas.

The plan by Holly Corp. and its partner Sinclair Transportation Co., has some wondering how the move will effect gasoline prices in Utah.

The plan would send about 62,000 barrels of gas, diesel and jet fuel a day into southwestern Utah and southern Nevada.

John Hill is the state director for the Utah Petroleum Marketers and Retailers Association. He says Utah's gas supply is already tight and shipping from Utah refineries without out any increase in supply would likely mean higher gas prices.

The proposal would help bring refined petroleum products to the booming areas of St. George and Las Vegas.

The project would cost about $300 million and construction could begin next spring.
