AAA Texas: Weekend Gas Watch

Mixed Reaction on the Gas Front

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 10, 2006 -- Texas gasoline prices showed a mixed bag of results as averages in some Texas cities moved slightly higher and others moved slightly lower, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.

The current Texas statewide average price for self-serve regular gasoline is $2.083 a gallon, about a penny less than last week.

Motorists in Corpus Christi are seeing some of the lowest averages in the state at $2.00 a gallon -- up a penny since the week before. The highest prices this week can be found in the Austin-San Marcos area at $2.149 a gallon -- down a penny.

"Gasoline prices in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston headed downward this week after adding a penny or two to their averages last week," said AAA Texas spokesperson Rose Rougeau. "It appears gasoline prices may be leveling off since there have not been any major price gains or losses in the past couple of weeks."

The national average for regular self-serve gasoline is about the same as last week's average $2.209 a gallon. AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch monitors the average price of gasoline in Texas.
