for a gallon in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area this morning is $2.43, which is down eight
cents from last week. A year ago on this date we were paying $2.26 a gallon. This morning’s
statewide average is down seven cents to $2.43 a gallon. The national average is down a
nickel to $2.73 a gallon. These prices are compiled daily by Triple A Texas.
