Average gasoline prices in Texas have risen 0.8 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.69/g today, Monday, April 17, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 13,114 stations in Texas. Prices in Texas are 23.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand $1.10/g higher than a year ago. In Breckenridge, gas prices on Sunday ranged from 7 cents less than last week to 20 cents higher with a few stations remaining steady.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state yesterday was $3.18/g while the highest was $4.79/g, a difference of $1.61/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 3.8 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.06/g today. The national average is down 21.1 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands $1.21/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.

“We’ve now seen the national average price of gasoline decline every week for the last month, a feat we most likely would not have expected ahead of summer and given the continued turns in Russia’s war on Ukraine. However, the downturn could slow or could even reverse in the days ahead if the rally in oil prices continues,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “A barrel of crude is now $14 higher than it was last week, as the European Union weighs placing harsher sanctions on Russia. This could further tilt the delicate balance of supply and demand in the wrong way, potentially sending oil prices up significantly if implemented. The path forward at the pump remains murky, however, with many possible outcomes, so motorists should be prepared for a bumpy ride.”
