News Notes: Texas may set new record for longest stretch of gas under $2/gallon, other stories


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas may set a new record Friday for the longest stretch of gas under $2 per gallon since 2005.

Fifteen years ago, AAA reported that’s the first time the statewide average jumped above $2. The statewide average has been below that amount since mid-March.

In a video lasting less than five minutes, Will DuPree shares those statistics as well as discusses these other stories in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:

  • Friday is the last chance for Austin parents to decide if they want their child to head back to the classroom in 10 days or keep learning from home.
  • At a campaign event Thursday, Gov. Greg Abbott said he would like new laws and stronger penalties for crimes committed during a riot, which has been met with pushback from some groups.
  • Dozens of Austin artists created an anthem called “Walk With Me Austin” to inspire people in the community.
