Gas Prices Stay Steady

Gas prices are staying steady right now, after months of price declines all across the nation and in Texoma. The state average is hitting right around $1.80, according to GasBuddy.com


    The low prices mean keeping more money in your pocket, and giving you more to spend. Many people say their costs to fill up are now nearly cut in half. 


    Gas station owners say more people are using that extra cash to buy those little things they may have held back on before.  


    “We've noticed a big increase in foot traffic on the inside and more cars filling up,” said Chris Cline, part owner of Fill N' Chill. “So we've definitely noticed an increase around the holidays, that were just here, an increase overall.” 


    Cline said people are spending more money on things like soda, candy and snacks.
