San Antonio continues to buck the national trend when it comes to what you’re paying at the gas pump.
“One of the few areas in the country still under $2” Gasbuddy dot-com’s Patrick DeHaan told KTSA News, pointing at another two-cent per gallon drop in the Alamo City’s average over the last week.
In fact, DeHaan said the pipeline problem that has pushed prices higher across much of the Southeast isn’t likely to have that same kind of impact in the San Antonio area.
“On one hand, it’s driving up prices in the Southeast, but it is putting some downward pressure on prices in the Gulf” DeHaan said, though adding he couldn’t rule out the possibility of an eventual uptick in prices.
As for the recent terror attacks in the Northeast and in Minnesota, DeHaan isn’t expecting that to have an impact on the fuel markets.
“There’s a big federal response to that–and that really does a lot to reduce fears” DeHaan said.
