Texas gas prices are unchanged in the past week, averaging $2.29/g, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 7.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, yet stand 32.3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

In Breckenridge, some gas stations have dropped their prices since last Monday. Check out the chart at the end of this story for the local prices.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in Texas today is $1.99/g while the highest is $3.59/g, a difference of $1.60/g. The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $1.81/g while the most expensive is $5.52/g, a difference of $3.71/g.

“While the national average was overall little changed in the last week, few states saw such mundane moves with average price changes all over the map,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

“The Pacific Northwest saw prices rising as refinery maintenance and overall supply tightness in the area pushed prices notably higher in Oregon and Washington while California saw additional relief after myriad refinery issues pushed them up weeks ago,” DeHaan continued. “Gas prices also cycled higher in Florida and throughout the Great Lakes while inching lower in the South and East. While we await any evidence of a trade deal signed between China and the U.S. we remain in a period of overall volatility at a time of year we’re accustomed to seeing prices fall. Expect this roller coaster to continue — I can’t remember an autumn where we saw so many factors that could impact prices so quickly and in such different directions.”

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.63/g today. The national average is down 2.7 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 19.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
