Well, mildly good news, anyway.
Though the price-per-gallon is still higher than it’s been in a few years, it does seem to be leveling off somewhat. Across the USA last week, gas prices actually decreased by $.01 per gallon.
Last Thursday, AAA Texas reported that the average price per gallon at Texas pumps declined 3 cents, to settle at $3.80.
The two most immediate ways you can lower your own gasoline cost are by paying less for the gasoline you put in your tank, and by making changes to the way you drive in order to use less gasoline to get from place to place.
SPEND LESS TO FILL YOUR TANK
by using the website Texas Gas Prices which monitors the current prices at stations across the state. Enter your ZIP code, and the site will tell you the lowest prices-per-gallon in your immediate area.
