Average gasoline price in Beaumont lowest in Texas

BEAUMONT - The average price for a gallon of gasoline in Beaumont is the lowest in Texas, according to the weekly survey released Thursday by AAA Texas.

The average in Beaumont is $3.32, down 7 cents from last week.

Irving, TX (AAA Texas)  Todays statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in Texas is $3.36 according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.  That price is five cents less than last week and 30 cents per gallon less than what drivers were paying on this same day a year ago.   Also, the average in Texas is 19 cents less than the national average of $3.55.   Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the state drivers in Amarillo are paying the most at $3.44 per gallon, and Beaumont, El Paso, and Ft. Worth are paying the least at $3.32.

With summer travel now in the rearview for many motorists, analysts say retail gas prices are likely to continue moving lower through the fall due to plentiful supplies, continued weaker demand, and the mid-September switch to cheaper winter-blend gasoline. While this would be welcome news for motorists, the possibility does remain that escalating violence in the Middle East, hurricanes or other unexpected disruptions to supply or distribution could send prices at least temporarily higher in the coming months.

With this in mind, the potential remains for higher retail prices in the coming weeks and months and AAA Texas reminds motorists to keep their vehicles maintained in order to maximize fuel efficiency, said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Sarah Schimmer.

AAA Texas recommends motorists follow their vehicle manufacturers recommended maintenance schedule.  If motorists 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.  Motorists can find the nearest shop to you by looking for the Approved Auto Repair sign or searching online at www.AAA.com.
