(Coppell, TX) – The statewide gas price average in Texas is now $2.28 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. That price is two cents more than last week and is 13 cents more per gallon compared to this day last year. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Midland are paying the most on average at $2.48 while drivers in San Antonio are paying the least at $2.18 per gallon. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.54, which is three cents more than this day last week and 22 cents more than the price per gallon at this same time last year.
