Texas Gas Prices Dropping And Could Go Even Lower
I'm one to pay attention to gas prices. It amazes me how often you'll see two stations right next to each other with a fifteen cent difference.
I get a kick out of finding a good price. Here's a tip and something that annoys the heck out of me: watch for a sign with tiny print under the price reading "price when awards card applied". I'm not getting an awards card to a gas station! Avoid those at all cost.
Anyway, right now it's pretty nice. Gas prices are the lowest they've been in a while. KHOU11 reports that the Texas average fuel rate is 26 cents cheaper than it was in August of last year at $2.35 for unleaded.
AAA thinks that the lowering trend isn't going to stop. Could you imagine pulling into a station and paying less than two bucks per gallon? I think I would cry.
And to think just a couple years ago folks were scared of there being a gas shortage right here in Central Texas. We've come a long way.
