Lubbock Drivers Enjoy Lowest Gas Prices in Texas


LUBBOCK, TX — Lubbock drivers are paying the least for gasoline in Texas, with an average price of $2.79 per gallon for regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch. 

This is part of a statewide trend where the gas price average remains steady at $3.03 per gallon, unchanged from last week and 12 cents lower compared to the same day last year.

In contrast, drivers in the El Paso metro area are paying the most on average at $3.17 per gallon. Nationally, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.46, which is three cents lower than last week and 13 cents lower than last year.


Supply increases of crude oil and gasoline are contributing to stable gas prices as the summer driving season begins. The Energy Information Administration reports that crude inventories grew by 3.7 million barrels this week, with gasoline inventories increasing by 2.7 million barrels.

“Texans are paying slightly less for gasoline so far this summer compared to last year,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster. “Supply builds of crude oil and gasoline are helping to keep retail fuel prices in check as many hit the road for summer vacations.”
