Gas prices are falling for the seventh straight week in Texas, and prices in Lubbock are among the lowest in the state.
The average low in Lubbock is $1.55 a gallon. That's the same price Dallas drivers are paying, but in Houston, gas is as low as $1.53. The lowest prices are being recorded down South in Harligen. Midland is the most expensive place to fill up. Gas there averages $1.76 a gallon. Statewide, these prices are ten cents lower than last month. But, it still cost an average .35 a gallon more to fill up than it did, last December.

Lubbock drivers, we spoke with call the drop in prices a good Christmas gift. "It helped me out a lot. I've got to run across town all the time," said one Lubbock driver.
No word yet if prices are expected to rise by the weekend as Texans prepare for holiday travel.
