The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas in the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood area dropped from a week ago. National organization AAA cites higher supply.
“Despite rising gas demand and recently elevated oil prices, the growth in total supply has helped to limit pump price increases. If demand does not spike, drivers could continue to see pump prices drift lower through the weekend,” AAA reported on Thursday.
In the area, the average price was $3.08 on Friday, which is 7 cents lower than last week’s average and 5 cents higher than it was this time last year, according to AAA.

Rest assured, if you are NOT in Biden's administration, you don't know PRECISELY what our petroleum supplies are.
That said, prices were all across our consumer economy were much lower on January 5th of 2022.
I take no consolation in the suffering of others, especially my brothers and sisters who are facing economic struggles they didn't cause.
America is hurting, and the Biden administration does nothing, the same nothing as consequences of recent the communist Chinese spy balloon episode.
