Average gasoline price up 7 cents in Beaumont

Beaumont - The average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in Beaumont has increased by 7 cents in the past week, according to a AAA Texas report released Thursday.

 

The price is $3.42. It was $3.26 at this time last year. The record high for Beaumont was $4 a gallon in July 2008.

 

(Irving, TX) a AAA Texas - Todayas statewide gas price average in Texas is $3.49. Thatas six cents more than last week, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the Lone Star State, drivers in Dallas and Ft. Worth are paying the most at $3.57, and drivers in El Paso are paying the least at $3.32 per gallon. On average Texas drivers are paying 17 cents less per gallon than the national average of $3.66.

With just two weeks remaining before refiners must switch to producing summer-blend gasoline, retail gas prices continued to move higher over the last week. Each spring, approaching that May 1 deadline for summer-blend fuel, seasonal refinery maintenance and the changeover itself increases the chances that an unplanned disruption to production may take place. The increased incidence of disruption puts upward pressure on prices, and can send prices sharply higher in an area that is supplied by an impacted facility. These sorts of issues have been minimal so far this spring but should be watched as we count down to the switchover deadline.

"To maximize fuel efficiency during these days of higher prices, keep vehicles maintained according to the manufacturer recommendations," said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe. "Also, get rid of unnecessary weight in the vehicle, don't speed or drive aggressively, and try to complete errands in fewer trips."
