The San Antonio gas price has begun to drift lower as Labor Day approaches, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The Triple A Texas says San Antonio motorists are paying an average of $2.52 today, that's down a penny in the past week and still the cheapest gas in Texas.
“While the statewide average for retail gasoline has dropped slightly over the last week, drivers are paying the most expensive August gas prices since 2014, said Daniel Armbruster, AAA Texas/AAA New Mexico spokesperson.
The price of gas has fluctuated this summer due to many factors, from dysfunction in the Venezuelan oil industry to talk of sanctions that would restrict oil sales by Iran.
But experts say with back to school around the corner, demand for gasoline will begin to fall and that will also bring down prices at the pump.
The statewide average today is $2.62, and in Midland, where motorists have been paying more than $3 all summer, the average price is $3.08.
Nationwide, the average price is more than thirty cents more than we're paying, at $2.87.
