Beaumont has lowest average gasoline price in Texas

BEAUMONT - Beaumont has the state's lowest average gasoline price at $3.28 a gallon according to AAA Texas.

 

The average has increased six cents a gallon in the past week.

 

 

(Houston, TX) – The statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded in Texas is now $3.38, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.  That price is four cents more than last week but 25 less than last year.   Today’s statewide average is also 17 cents less than the national average which is now $3.55.

 

Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the state, drivers in Dallas and Ft. Worth are paying the most on average at $3.41, and drivers in Beaumont are paying the least at $3.28 a gallon.

 

Since national gas prices peaked at the end of February, motorists nationwide have felt welcome relief at the pump in the form of falling prices.  In recent weeks, the exception to this downward trend was limited to six states in the Great Lakes region where the transition to summer-blend gasoline and heavy rains triggered supply concerns and provided a catalyst for higher retail prices.

 

Recent signs of economic recovery have supported higher oil prices recently and led to slight increases in many parts of the country including Texas.

 

“Although we’ve seen the prices go up over the last week, we’re still doing much better than we were on this same day last year,” said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Sarah Schimmer.  “If fact, consumers are paying about $47 to fill up the typical 14-gallon size fuel tank today and they were paying about $51 for the same amount of fuel one year ago.”

 

As we approach Memorial Day weekend, AAA Texas will continue to monitor gas prices week by week so drivers can make informed decisions about their travel plans.  AAA Texas also encourages motorists to maintain their cars and trucks according to manufacturer’s recommendations to increase their vehicle’s fuel efficiency.

 

To help consumers identify quality auto repair shops that can assist in the maintenance and repair of their vehicles, AAA offers the Approved Auto Repair program as a free public service. AAA-approved repair facilities meet and maintain high professional standards for training, equipment, cleanliness and customer service. Motorists can look for the Approved Auto Repair sign at local auto repair facilities, or search for a nearby AAA-approved shop online at AAA.com/Repair.  AAA Texas can be visited on the Internet at www.AAA.com.
