AAA Texas: State Gas Price Average Just Under $3 as Spring Break Approaches

AAA Texas: State Gas Price Average Just Under $3 as Spring Break Approaches
The statewide gas price average in Texas is $2.94 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. That price is one cent less than on this day last week and is three cents less per gallon compared to this day last year. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in El Paso are paying the most on average at $3.24 per gallon while drivers in Lubbock are paying the least at $2.78 per gallon. The national average price for a gallon of regular  unleaded is $3.40, which is eight cents more when compared to this day last week and two cents less than the price per gallon at this same time last year.

Texas drivers are noticing an uptick in fuel prices, with the state average for regular unleaded rising by 10 cents compared to just a month ago. Despite the slight increase in fuel costs, drivers preparing for spring break excursions may find some solace in the fact that the current prices are not significantly different from those experienced during the same period last year. However, Texas retail gas prices could start to increase if demand remains strong and supplies continue to tighten.

“March is a popular month for road trips and drivers in Texas are likely noticing that gas prices have increased slightly over the last month,” said Daniel Armbruster, spokesperson for AAA Texas. “Demand for fuel remains strong and supplies are tightening, which could cause fuel price averages to increase as Spring Break approaches.”
