Average gasoline price rises 4 cents in Beaumont

BEAUMONT - The average price for a gallon of gasoline has increased 4 cents in Beaumont during the past week, according to the weekly survey from AAA Texas.


The average was $3.42 this week. It was $3.37 at this time a year ago. The record high is $4 a gallon in July 2008.

 

 

Irving - from AAA Texas

 

The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Texas is now $3.50, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.  That price is six cents higher than one week ago but 17 cents lower than the national average of $3.67.  Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Dallas are paying the most at $3.57 per gallon while drivers in Corpus Christi are paying the least at $3.41 per gallon.

 

Gas prices often decline in June, and in fact, the national average fell in June during the previous three years.  However, analysts say recent turmoil in Iraq is likely to prevent that trend from repeating this year.  AAA Texas encourages drivers to maximize their fuel efficiency with the following tips:

 

  • Keep vehicle maintained according to manufacturer recommendations.
  • Lighten the load by not hauling unnecessary weight.
  • Consolidate and plan trips to cut down on miles traveled.
  • Comparison-shop by phone, online or through ads, rather than driving from store to store.
  • If you own more than one vehicle, use the more energy-conserving model when possible.
  • Use air conditioning conservatively.  Use "economy" or "recirculate" feature, if available.
  • Watch for lower fuel prices, but don't waste gas driving far to save a few cents.
  • Maintain steady speeds when driving.
  • Avoid quick starts and sudden stops.
  • Travel at moderate speeds on the open road.  Higher speeds require more fuel.

 

"We don't know for sure if prices will continue to rise, but we do know following these simple tips will help drivers save money at the pumps," said AAA Texas/New Mexico Representative Doug Shupe.  "The type of car you drive, how it's maintained, and how you drive significantly affect fuel conservation."

 

To help members and non-members identify quality auto repair shops that can assist in the maintenance and repair of their vehicles, AAA offers the Approved Auto Repair program as a free public service.  AAA-approved repair facilities meet and maintain high professional standards for training, equipment, cleanliness and customer service. Motorists can look for the Approved Auto Repair sign at local auto repair facilities, or search for a nearby AAA-approved shop online at AAA.com/Repair.  AAA Texas can be visited on the Internet at www.AAA.com.  Follow AAA Texas on Twitter: @AAATexas and Facebook: www.facebook.com/AAATexas.
