Texas gas prices increase 4 cents
HOUSTON (AP) — The average price across Texas for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline increased 4 cents this week.
AAA Texas reported Thursday the average price increased to $3.07. Motorists in Texarkana are paying the most, with an average of $3.12 per gallon. Drivers in Beaumont are paying the least at $3.02 per gallon.
The average price for fuel in Texas is 19 cents less than the national average of $3.26.
AAA Texas says gas prices may be impacted by what happens regarding the "fiscal cliff" — budget cuts and tax hikes that would kick in on Jan. 1 unless the White House and Congress agree on a budget deal. The group says a deal will likely been seen as an economic positive, sending prices higher, while no deal could lower prices.
