AAA: Texas gas prices fall for 15th straight week

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — AAA Texas is reporting a drop in the average price of regular unleaded fuel for the fifteenth straight week.

Louisiana and Mississippi are the only two states in the U.S. where you can find average gas prices lower than the $3.11 per gallon now posted in Texas.

The most expensive gas in the Lone Star State is found in Amarillo, where drivers are paying an average of $3.33 per gallon. San Angelo has the lowest average price for a gallon of regular unleaded at $2.96.

While Texas gas prices continue to fall, this week’s average for regular is still 29 cents more than what Texans were paying a year ago this week.

The recent hurricane that just hit the state of Florida, and now threatens the east coast, is not expected to impact gas prices in Texas.

“Hurricane Ian’s track is not expected to increase pump prices in our area due to the monster storm’s path impacting the eastern side of the Gulf,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster. “Still, supply and demand volatility will keep gasoline prices fluctuating in some metro regions.”

The national average price for regular unleaded fuel jumped this week due to higher regional prices on the West Coast and in the Midwest. These regions experienced refinery issues that range from planned maintenance to a fire.
