Texas gas prices are unchanged in the past week, averaging $1.85/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. In Breckenridge and the surrounding area, most gas prices are the same as last week, although a couple of stations lowered their prices by a couple of cents; see the local and area gas prices below.

Gas prices in Texas are 1.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand 42.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in Texas today is $1.47/g while the highest is $2.69/g, a difference of $1.22/g.

“Gas price trends continue to be typical for this time of year, easing slightly in most places as demand continues its slow seasonal drop, with potential enhancement from the recent surge in new coronavirus cases,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “More stations are falling back under $2 per gallon, in fact the highest amount of stations since May are now under that level, and I do believe that trend will continue at least for now as improvement in the coronavirus situation remains elusive. There may be minor disruption in price and localized supply challenges as Tropical Storm Zeta again takes aim for the Gulf Coast, but like we’ve seen with Laura, Sally and Delta, these issues have been very minor compared to a normal year due to the reduction in our gasoline appetite.”

The national average price of gasoline is unchanged in the last week, averaging $2.14/g today. The national average is down 4.2 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 45.5 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
