January is normally a time for gasoline prices to cool off, but that is not the case this year.
AAA Texas says the statewide average for a gallon of regular fuel now sits at $2.33. That’s a five-cent increase.
The average in San Antonio is also up five cents to now sit at $2.23.
It is still the lowest average price across the state. Midland has the highest average price, with drivers there paying $2.50.
It’s still better than the national average, currently at $2.56, up a couple pennies.
