Average gasoline price up a nickel in Beaumont

BEAUMONT - The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline has increased five cents in Beaumont during the past week, according to a survey released Thursday by AAA Texas.

 

The price was $3.10.  It was $3.36 at this time last year. The record average high is $4 a gallon in July 2008. 

(Irving, TX) from AAA Texas

 

The cost of filling up a tank of gas will cost drivers more this week.  According to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch, the statewide average in the Lone Star State is now $3.15.  That price is eight cents more than last week but 27 cents less than a year ago.  Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Corpus Christi are now paying the most at $3.18 and drivers in Amarillo are paying the least at $3.07.  The average in Texas is currently 18 cents less than the national average of $3.33.

In a departure from recent years, gas prices have been largely flat to begin 2014.  This can be attributed in part to cold temperatures keeping drivers off of roads but also the absence of looming production concerns overseas or regional refinery issues that propelled gasoline prices higher out of the gate the last several years.

As refineries begin seasonal maintenance, the switchover to summer-blend gasoline production takes place, and the demand for fuel increases with warmer weather, historically pump prices have increased.  AAA analysts expect gas prices to rise this spring due to those seasonal factors. 

Texans are now paying about $44 to fill up the typical 14-gallon size fuel tank, said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe.  To combat the rise in gas prices, we encourage people to follow your vehicle manufacturers maintenance schedule, get extra weight out of the car that you dont need, combine your errands into fewer trips, and dont speed or drive aggressively.
