Not much change in gas prices over the past week. The average price in the Beaumont/Port
Arthur area dropped a penny to $2.63 a gallon. A year ago on the date we were paying $2.02
a gallon. There was no change in the statewide average as it stayed at $2.65 a gallon. This
morning’s national average is $2.88 a gallon, which is actually up two cents.
