Average gasoline price up one cent in Beaumont

BEAUMONT - The average price for one gallon of regular unleaded gasoline has increased a penny in Beaumont during the past week, according to AAA Texas.

The price was $3.39 a gallon. It was $3.64 at this time last year.

The record high in Beaumont was $4 a gallon in July 2008.   

 

Irving (From AAA Texas)  Todays statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in Texas is $3.41 according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.  That price is one cent less than last week but a quarter per gallon less than what drivers were paying on this same day a year ago.   Also, the average in Texas is 18 cents less than the national average of $3.59.   Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the state drivers in Amarillo are paying the most at $3.50 per gallon, and drivers in El Paso are paying the least at $3.34.  

 

Monday marked the end of the summer driving season. While oil prices remain at lofty levels due to geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and North Africa, retail gas prices have not moved markedly higher during this period, as upward pressure from higher oil prices have been largely offset by comfortable domestic gasoline supplies, demand that has lagged a year ago, and an Atlantic hurricane season that has, thus far, been very weak.

 

For the first time in more than ten years there has been no Atlantic hurricane through the end of August and it is possible that this year may mark the latest date in the satellite era for a first hurricane to form. The current record is 2002 when Hurricane Gustav reached hurricane status on September 11. While this year does mark a historically late start to the hurricane season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) continues to forecast a more active than average season, which extends through November.

 

With this in mind, the potential remains for higher retail prices in the coming weeks and months should storms impact gasoline production and distribution, said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe.  Well continue to watch for hurricane development while monitoring the gas prices each week.

 

In the meantime, AAA Texas reminds drivers that schools are back in session and to please drive carefully in school zones and stop for school buses letting students on and off.

 

Also, to maximize fuel efficiency, AAA Texas recommends you follow your vehicle manufacturers recommended maintenance schedule.  If you need help, AAA offers a free public service.  The AAA Approved Auto Repair program refers AAA members and other consumers to facilities that meet and maintain high professional standards. Today, there are approximately 8,000 AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities in the U.S. and Canada.  You can find the nearest shop to you by looking for the Approved Auto Repair sign or searching online at aaa.com/repair.
