Gas Tops $3.00 a Gallon in Central Texas
Fuel prices are giving Central Texas drivers some gas pains again.
The Triple-A's "Fuel Gauge Report" puts the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded just under $3.02. That's about it's about three cents cheaper than the statewide average.
Drivers who use diesel are being hit even harder, with that fuel running an average of $3.44 a gallon.
While high, there's still a ways to go before Texas starts treading into record gas price territory. Regular unleaded hit just a hair below $4 a gallon and diesel was $4.74 a gallon in mid-July, 2008.
