Average gas price up in Beaumont

BEAUMONT - The average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline has increased two cents in the past week in Beaumont, according to the weekly price report released by AAA Texas. The price increased from $3.25 to $3.27. It was $3.41 at this time last year. The record high for Beaumont was $4 in July 2008.

 

(Irving, TX) From AAA Texas

The statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in Texas is now $3.36, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. That price is two cents more than one week ago and 18 cents less per gallon than one year ago. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Ft. Worth are paying the most at $3.47, and drivers in San Antonio are paying the least at $3.25 per gallon. Drivers in the Lone Star State are paying an average of 18 cents less per gallon than drivers nationwide. The national gas price average sits at $3.54.

AAA analysts expect prices will peak in the coming weeks. How much more prices rise will likely be dictated by the impact of seasonal refinery maintenance and any disruptions to production or distribution. As is the case each spring, refiners are required to switchover to producing summer-blend gasoline by May 1. The maintenance that refineries undertake in advance of the switchover and the actual switch itself increases the chance of disruptions to production, which can send prices higher in the area that is normally supplied by a limited or offline facility. While refinery issues have thus far been minimal this spring, the next several weeks will bear close attention.

Pump prices in most states moved higher over the last week, said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe. It now costs a driver in Texas about $47 to fill up the typical 14-gallon size fuel tank.
