Average gasoline prices in Texas have fallen 9.6 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.68/g today, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 13,114 stations in Texas. In Breckenridge, prices dropped 5.9 cents per gallon over the past week.

“Gas prices have continued to move in the right direction — down — saving Americans approximately $100 million every day compared to when prices peaked about a month ago. And, more good news is on the horizon: the national average this week will likely fall back under the critical $4 per gallon mark,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “It remains possible that gas prices may have hit their 2022 peak, barring the typical caveats like the Russia war on Ukraine, the economy, hurricane season and COVID don’t take drastic and unexpected turns. Diesel prices are also falling and likely to go back under the $5 per gallon average this week. The situation for now continues to show signs of improving, with the national average falling back into the $3 range as early as this week.”

Prices in Texas are 32.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand $1.08/g higher than a year ago. According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state yesterday was $3.29/g while the highest was $4.79/g, a difference of $1.50/g.
