The prices of gasoline dropped suddenly, and more people decided to spend more time on the road. They bought new cars and the traffic increased.
Consequently, this led to the increase in road accidents in most municipalities in Texas including Pflugerville. As gas prices rose gradually in 2017, car traffic reduced. This could be the reason for the drop in accidents in 2017. However, the city of Pflugerville recorded an increase in accidents in 2018.
