The statewide gas price average in Texas is $2.34 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. That price is three cents less than on this day last week and is 31 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 $2.62 while drivers in Denison and Sherman are paying the least at $2.24 per gallon. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.66, which is one cent more compared to this day last week and 25 cents less than the price per gallon at this same time last year.

Nearly three weeks after attacks on major Saudi Arabian oil facilities, the majority of Texans are seeing signs of gas prices trending cheaper. While the national average may have increased slightly week-to-week, 10 states saw pump prices decline by a nickel or more. Crude oil prices have dropped close to where they were right before the drone attacks on the Saudi oil facilities. However, drivers along the West Coast region are still experiencing price spikes following a number of refinery outages that have tightened supply in the market.

“Crude oil prices have dropped close to where they were right before the drone attacks on the Saudi oil facilities,” said Daniel Armbruster, AAA Texas spokesperson. “Market analysts anticipate that Texans will continue to see cheaper pump prices in the weeks to come.”
