Texas gas prices fell 2.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.77/g on Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 10.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand 49.9 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“As expected, previous weakness in oil has continued to translate into falling gasoline prices nearly nationwide as motorists cast their ballots last week, but the six week trend could reverse on optimism that President-elect Biden may move quickly to get organized and Sen. Majority Leader McConnell has said stimulus is high on his agenda, aiding the economy and oil demand,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “As of late Sunday, a barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude oil was up over 8% compared to just last Monday, a solid rally that may eventually halt the decline in gasoline prices, should the optimism continue even against a backdrop of a continued global rise in coronavirus cases. It remains challenging to predict how the Presidential transition may occur, and if it drags the economy down, I could see pessimism and lower prices return, but for now, it appears that a solid dose of optimism may soon drive prices up.”

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state on Monday was $1.46/g while the highest is $2.49/g, a difference of $1.03/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 1.9 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.09/g today. The national average is down 8.8 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 53.7 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
