The statewide gas price average fell for the 13th week in a row as the price of crude is impacted by conflicting headlines.
SAN ANTONIO — We are finally getting some good news at the pump here in Texas. AAA Texas is reporting that the statewide gas price average fell for the 13th week in a row.
Gas is now $3.18 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in Texas, which is three cents less than last week and 37 cents more when compared to this day last year.
Drivers in El Paso are paying the most in the state at $3.36 per gallon, while drivers in McAllen and San Angelo are paying the least at the pump at $2.99 per gallon.
Texans have the third lowest gas price in the country, according to gasprices.aaa.com.
On the flip side, California drivers are paying the most at a whopping $5.44 on average for a gallon of regular unleaded gas.
The average price for fuel across the nation is at $3.70 per gallon. That’s five cents less than last week and 52 cents more than what it cost last year.
“The crosswinds in the oil and gas market remain strong and conflicting,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Joshua Zuber. “Overall, the market has been pricing in an economic slowdown in the face of inflation while the energy industry continues to factor in supply worries with the war in Ukraine.”
