Gas prices drop again in Texas

Local News

(Big 2/Fox 24) – Gas prices dropped again throughout the state, according to AAA Texas.

According to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch, the average price per gallon is currently sitting at $1.86. That mark is three cents less than the same day last week and 45 cents less per gallon than the same day last year, AAA reports.

Experts say the price drops are attributed to the low demand.

“After the lowest summer gas price average for Texas drivers in 16 years, cheaper fuel continues to flow, even with tropical weather interrupting the oil and gas industry in the Gulf once again,” Daniel Armbruster, AAA spokesman, said. “Prices are dropping due to lower than normal gasoline demand as COVID-19 concerns remain and summer driving season is winding down.”

Drivers in Odessa, according to AAA, are paying the most on average at $1.97.
