Average gasoline price decreases

BEAUMONT - The average price for one gallon of unleaded gasoline in Beaumont has dropped from $3.08 to $3.05 this week, according to the weekly price survey released Thursday by AAA Texas.  The average was $3.38 at this time one year ago.

 

 

IRVING From AAA Texas

Todays statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in Texas is $3.10 according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.  That price is two cents less from one week ago and 31 cents less per gallon than what drivers were paying on this same day a year ago.   The average in Texas is 23 cents less than the national average of $3.33.   Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the Lone Star State, drivers in Amarillo and Texarkana are paying the most at $3.14 per gallon, and drivers in Beaumont, Galveston, and Houston are paying the least at $3.05.  

 

Analysts say crude oil prices moved lower this week, and if crude oil prices continue to lower in the days and weeks ahead consumers could also expect to see retail gas prices continue to decrease. Lower demand for gasoline, ample supply in the market, and the seasonal transition to the cheaper winter-blend fuel production continues to keep retail gas prices low.  AAA continues to expect that national gas prices will fall in the coming months.

 

This week Texans are paying about $43 per tank of gas for an average family sized vehicle.  Thats about $5 less per tank compared to what Texans were paying at this time last year, said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe.  Keeping your vehicle maintained from season to season is the best way to continue to make the most of your fuel dollars.

 

For help keeping your car or truck maintained according to manufacturer recommendations, 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.
