Checking Friday at the pump shows the average price for a gallon of gas in the Beaumont/
Port Arthur area dropped three cents over the past week to $2.63 a gallon. A year ago on this
date we were paying $2.06 a gallon. The statewide rate dropped a nickel to $2.67 a gallon.
This morning’s national average is $2.86 a gallon, which is down four cents. These averages
are complied daily by Triple A Texas.
