In Brenham, the average price of gas is $4.57, with a low of $4.37 and a high of $4.90.

Looking at the metropolitan areas in Texas, drivers in El Paso are paying the most on average at $4.62, while drivers in Laredo are paying the least at $4.10.

Nationwide, the average price for a gallon of unleaded fuel is $4.84, 8 cents less than the price last week, but $1.72 more than last year.

AAA Texas predicts 3.5 million Texans will travel this Independence Day weekend.  That number includes 3.1 million Texans traveling by car, which would be the most on record driving for the holiday.
