I have noticed over the past few days that gas prices have been on the decline instead of skyrocketing. We always hear about the rise in gas prices but rarely about the decline, and that’s what I’m excited about today!

On my way to the radio station this morning, I noticed the two convenience stores on Old Jacksonville Highway in Gresham were down to $3.58, and other stations along my way to work are out hanging around $3.63 (which is still high, of course, but lower!).

The price for a gallon of unleaded nationally is $3.80, so East Texas is fairing a lot better than other parts of the country. A quick check at Longview’s gas prices through TexasGasPrices.com and GasBuddy.com show the lowest price for a gallon of gas is at Murphy USA on Gilmer Road.

Kilgore is a little more at $3.62 at Murphy USA on Southport, and in Tyler the least expensive gas is Sam’s Club on SSW Loop 323 at $3.54 and several others around $3.55.

Keep ‘em coming down! We all can use the break, especially with school almost out.

Let us know where you see the prices falling and that way we all can save money.  You can also check prices in your area through GasBuddy.com or TexasGasPrices.com.
