Texas gas prices have fallen 5.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.33/g, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 17.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, yet stand 27.4 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. More than half of the local stations lowered their prices in the past week; check out the Breckenridge prices in the chart below.

“For a surprising fifth straight week, the national average has declined, ushering in lower gas prices to every state and providing relief to consumers who’ve watched the stock market tank, but of for the same reason oil prices have plunged,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “While gasoline demand remains healthy, continued worry over U.S. and China relations clouds energy markets and has weighed significantly on oil prices.”

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state is $1.99/g while the highest is $3.19/g, a difference of $1.20/g. The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $1.81/g while the most expensive is $5.09/g, a difference of $3.28/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 3.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.60/g today. The national average is down 17.0 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 22.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“As the summer draws to a close, the declines may slow down as new signs from both the U.S. and China show a less aggressive tone regarding trade, but we’ll have to see if that materializes into something concrete in the weeks ahead,” DeHaan said. “For now I believe we’ll see more moves to the downside for most states as the national average continues to move to fresh summer lows as Labor Day approaches.”
