The statewide gas price average in Texas is $3.25 per gallon for regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. That price is four cents less than on this day last week and is two cents less per gallon compared to this day last year. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in the Fort Worth-Arlington area are paying the most on average at $3.39 per gallon while drivers in Amarillo are paying the least at $2.97 per gallon. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.66, which is one cent less when compared to this day last week and is the same price per gallon when compared to this day last year.

With tensions running high over the past few weeks in the Middle East, the cost of oil reached the upper $80s per barrel. However, it has since fallen several dollars into the low $80s as the oil market watches to see if any further military actions occur. This is also the time of year we may see a bit of a lull in gasoline demand between the end of spring breaks and ahead of Memorial Day.   

“Crude oil has come down in price and demand has slowed, which is keeping further gas price increases at bay,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “Drivers can anticipate pump price fluctuations through the remainder of April.”
