According to AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch, the average price of gas is 38 cents lower than this time last year. The statewide gas price average in Texas is $2.29 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel.
“Fall is here, and demand for retail gasoline is dropping and with it concerns of higher gas prices seen in September are quickly fading,” said Daniel Armbruster, AAA Texas spokesperson. “The average gas price in Texas is still two cents more than one month ago, but market analysts anticipate prices will continue falling in the weeks to come.”
