The average price of gas in Texas is two cents more than the same day last week and is 90 cents more per gallon compared to the same day last year.

DALLAS – Honda employees helped hundreds of drivers in North Texas get free gasoline Monday.

Because gas and oil production was affected on the Gulf Coast due to Hurricane Ida, Honda’s helpful employees at North Texas Honda dealerships provided free gasoline at local North Texas gas stations in the United States. morning and afternoon.

“Ida’s impact on the bomb will be felt for many drivers as we head to the final stretch of the summer driving season this Labor Day holiday weekend,” the American Automobile spokesman said Association (AAA) of Texas, Daniel Armbruster.

As of Thursday, the average gas price in the state in Texas is currently $ 2.81 per gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.

That is two cents more than the same day last week and is 90 cents more per gallon compared to the same day last year.

Refineries are conducting initial infrastructure inspections in Louisiana to assess a timetable for resuming operations safely, according to AAA.

The colonial gas pipeline announced last Tuesday that operations have returned to normal after closing over the weekend.

Honda’s helpful staff was in Circle K on Westmoreland Rd. in Dallas and Valero in N. Tarrant Pkwy. in Fort Worth.

In a video shared by Honda from the Valero location, many cars and trucks lined up on a nearby road can be seen waiting to receive free gasoline.
