The Triple-A Texas Weekend Gas Watch says the statewide average gas price in Texas is two-81 a gallon for regular unleaded. That price is down one-cent from a week ago and is 95-cents higher than a year ago.
The national average is three-19. The back-to-back impacts of Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas affected crude production and refinery but caused more of a price fluctuation nationally than in Texas. The average price at the pump in McAllen is two-83.
