Average gasoline prices in Texas have fallen 9.0 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.90/g today, Monday, March 21, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 13,114 stations in Texas. Locally, prices for regular unleaded are an average of 3.3 cents per gallon cheaper than last week.

Prices in Texas are 71.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand $1.26/g higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state yesterday was $3.16/g while the highest was $4.82/g, a difference of $1.66/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 9.0 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.23/g today. The national average is up 71.5 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands $1.37/g higher than a year ago, according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 11 million weekly price reports covering over 150,000 gas stations across the country.

“GasBuddy, last week, predicted that a top was in for the national average price of gasoline, and indeed, for the first time in 12 weeks, the national average price of gasoline has declined. While the decline is still subject to changes in global supply and demand, COVID and Russia’s war on Ukraine, we are poised to see additional downdrafts at the pump this week in most areas,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “For now, gasoline demand has shown absolutely no signs of buckling under the pressure of higher prices, even as California nears an average of $6 per gallon, with spring break travel well underway. If the situation does worsen, with more oil being kept away from global markets, it’s not impossible that gas prices would still have to climb a considerable amount for Americans to start curbing their insatiable demand for gasoline.”
