Sept. 21–Gas prices remained fairly stable in North Texas this week, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.
As travel analysts expected, tropical system Florence didn’t impact gas prices in Texas, likely because the Carolinas only have pipelines and terminals, not refineries, according to an AAA Texas press release.
The statewide gas price average in Texas is $2.60 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, AAA Texas reported. That price is one cent less than the same day last week and 12 cents more per gallon compared to the same day last year.
Dallas prices are right on par with the state average, reflecting a 4-cent drop from last week. Sherman-Denison drivers are paying $2.58 on average for a gallon of unleaded gas, down a penny from last week.
Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Midland are paying the most on average at $3.04 while drivers in San Antonio and Texarkana are paying the least at $2.52 per gallon.
“Gas prices remained pretty stable across Texas week-to-week,” Daniel Armbruster, AAA Texas/AAA New Mexico spokesperson, said in the press release. “What was Hurricane Florence caused little to no disruption to the state’s gas prices and even the nation’s, as well.”
Prices were up to date at press time Thursday using market prices posted at 3:41 a.m.
