TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An AAA Texas report showed Tyler has some of the lowest gas prices in the state this week.

According to this week’s report, the current average price for a gallon of unleaded gas is a $1.83 in Tyler, unchanged from last week. That’s the second lowest in the state to Amarillo with an average of $1.81 a gallon.

In Longview, prices are down to an average of $1.88 a gallon. A slight decrease from last week’s average of $1.89.

The current state average is stable at a $1.92.

Today’s national average for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.24, which is one cent less than a week ago, 18 cents less than a month ago and 27 cents less than a year ago.

According to AAA Texas, low demand for gasoline this winter has helped total domestic gas stocks grow, causing pump prices to drop. A news release states, “If stocks continue to grow amid low demand and low oil prices, motorists will likely see pump prices continue their descent as the country settles into winter.”
