Fort Worth-Arlington enjoys lower gasoline prices
Rejoice, motorists who gas up in the Tarrant area. You're paying the lowest prices in Texas, auto group AAA said in its latest weekly gas price report. AAA said gas stations in the Fort Worth-Arlington area reported an average $3.08 a gallon for regular unleaded. That compared to a state average of $3.14 and a national average of $3.38. Prices were down from a week ago by 2 to 3 cents a gallon, but AAA noted that it still cost about $44 to fill a 14-gallon tank in Texas. “We encourage motorists to continue every effort to maximize fuel efficiency including keeping their cars and trucks maintained according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations,” said AAA's Texas/New Mexico representative, Doug Shupe.
