Average gasoline prices in Texas have fallen 1 cent per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.64/g on Monday, June 20, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 13,114 stations in Texas.

The price of diesel has risen 2.6 cents nationally in the past week and stands at $5.80 per gallon. In Breckenridge, gas prices fell at all but one gas station with the drops ranging from 8 cents per gallon to 20 per gallon; see the list of local gas prices in the chart below.

“Finally some relief! For the first time in nine weeks, gasoline prices have fallen, following a broad sell-off in oil markets last week, pushing the national average back under the $5 level with most states seeing relief at the pump,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “I’m hopeful the trend may continue this week, especially as concerns appear to be mounting that we may be on the cusp of an economic slowdown, putting downward pressure on oil. But the coast isn’t yet entirely clear. We could see the national average fall another 15 to 30 cents, if we’re lucky, by the time fireworks are flying, barring any unexpected shutdowns at a time when the market is extremely sensitive to such.”

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Texas was priced at $3.89/g on Sunday, while the most expensive was $5.69/g, a difference of $1.80/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.97/g today. The national average is up 37.3 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands $1.92/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.
