San Antonio gas prices below state average

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $3.46 in Texas, but drivers in San Antonio are paying 10 cents less at $3.36.

Statewide, the price for a gallon of regular unleaded is 62 cents more than the average price a year ago today.

But Texans are paying three cents per gallon, on average, than they were a week ago today, according to AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.

This marks the ninth straight week gas prices have dropped in Texas, even though the pace of that decrease is slowing.

“With demand for gasoline stronger week-to-week and supplies tightening, drivers in some areas across Texas are seeing pump price averages increase,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster. “While the statewide fuel price average dropped for the ninth consecutive week, price fluctuations remain possible due to current market dynamics.”

Numbers from AAA show College Station has the most expensive gas in Texas at $3.64 per gallon, while drivers in McAllen are paying the least at $3.13 per gallon of regular unleaded.

Texans are paying the second lowest price for gas in the United States while Hawaii pays the most at $5.34 per gallon.

Some areas of Texas have seen average increases over the last week, but the majority of the Lone Star State has falling gas prices as crude oil remains below $100 per barrel.
