School will be out soon and summer vacations will begin. Will gas prices keep you close to home? For some it’s “gas prices be darned … road trip ON!!”

Most gas prices in East Texas are still below $4 per gallon, but some stations are flirting with that $4 mark. Find out where the cheapest gas is here. says the Shell station at Champions Drive and US 59 in Lufkin has some of the most expensive gas in the area. At last check, a gallon of the lowest-priced regular unleaded at that spot was $3.89.

The Murphy USA station at Daniel McCall and South 1st had some of the lowest-priced gas in Lufkin and it’s not that much lower – at $3.85 per gallon. Several Exxon stations, were somewhere in the middle.

In Nacogdoches, the highest price reported on was the Exxon at South St. and SL 224, at $3.89 per gallon. The lowest-priced gas in Nac, via GasBuddy, was the Kroger on North Street near Bailey at $3.84.

This all means it costs well over $100 to fill up most large SUV’s.

If you are planning a road trip, perhaps the thing to do is pack up the family in a Mini Cooper and head out. Or ask for a raise!
