WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Drivers geared up to hit the road during the tax-free weekend will be paying a little more at the pump. The statewide average for a price of a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.17.

That price is two cents more than last week and 20 cents more than this time last year. Drivers in the Dallas area are paying the most on average per gallon at $2.23. 

The national average is sitting at $2.36, which is three cents more than last week and 23 cents higher than this time last year.
"Texans are enjoying some of the lowest gas prices in the country," said AAA Texas/AAA New Mexico Representative Daniel Armbruster in a statement. "Drivers in Texas are paying an average of $30 to fill a 14-gallon tank, which is the average for a family-sized vehicle."

If you are an AAA Texas member you can feel a little better this tax-free weekend by shopping online with AAA Discounts & Rewards to save money on school supplies for their students.
