LUBBOCK, Texas -

AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch reports Texas' average price for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel is $2.26. The same as this day last week, but is four cents less per gallon compared to this day last year.

The national average is currently $2.59 per gallon. Two cents less than this day last week and one cent less than this same time last year.

The average price in Lubbock is $2.23, down two cents from last week, but three cents higher than this same time last year. 

Of all the cities surveyed Midland had the highest average price at $2.41. While drivers in Tyler and Victoria are paying the least at $2.16 per gallon.


More information from AAA Texas:

“AAA anticipates the second-highest automobile travel volume on record for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday period, which will likely cause demand for retail gasoline to increase,” said Daniel Armbruster, AAA Texas spokesperson. “If demand continues to rise, price fluctuations are possible through the end of November.”

Regional refinery utilization jumped to 89.7% according to the Energy Information Administration’s latest data. That is the highest rate for any region in the country. With the increase in utilization, gasoline stocks increased to 78.5 million. This combination helped to stave off price increases for many Texas cities, this week.
