Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Gas Prices Eased this Week

Gas Prices Eased this Week

Gas prices eased a little this week.  In Texas, the average is around $2.87 with the lowest amount in Corpus Christi at $2.75 a gallon.  The national average was down $0.06 to $2.98.

I still don't think that gas prices effect where people buy houses.  We have the DART train that runs through parts of the Dallas area, and I haven't really noticed the parking lots more full (fuller) than usual.  People in Dallas love their cars.  They like to show off their cars.  They're not going to park their nice, expensive car in a parking lot to take a train to work.  How would they be able to volunteer to drive to lunch and have everyone ohhh and ahhh about their car?

With the Kroger grocery card, I get $0.10 off per gallon, so I paid $2.76 last time I filled up!

Not in the Chicago Metro area...still seeing gas prices between $3.13 and $3.30. Depends which station you visit. There are several in the area that always have lower prices. So, I'm surprised when a station two blocks away can get away with a price that's a dime higher.

As we don't have good suburban buses or trains our here, we need to drive. Only if you're working downtown can you hop on a train...but, even that involves getting to the train station.

Downtown Naperville Metra parking stickers has an 8 year wait!!
