Gas prices lower this holiday season


SAN ANTONIO - Prices at the pumps range from $2.86 to $2.99 on Austin Highway. The state average is at $3.03, but for some, the dip in prices aren’t enough.

"Gas prices went up for Thanksgiving and they usually do go up for the holidays, and everybody thinks it’s so great when it’s get down below $3, but I don't think that's very much,” said Stephanie Castor as she filled up.

Castor just got back from Colorado. She admits prices here are cheaper, but believes we may just be getting a Christmas price break.

"I think they are trying to throw us a bone personally -- just my opinion," said Castor.

John Saldivar is moving from Austin to San Antonio. He was filling up the U-Haul truck he’s using to make the move.

He told KSAT it costs nearly $100 to gas up, and it’s for that he’s excited about the price drop.

"It helps in the pocketbook. It helps you buy presents for the kids and stuff like that. Any amount helps," said Saldivar.

It’s unclear how much longer or how much more the prices for fuel will drop, but everyone is hopeful it will last until at least the end of the holidays.
