Even as the population of Texas increased in the past year, overall alcohol consumption went down.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission says there were 49.8 million gallons of beer, wine and spirits sold in March 2012. That dropped last month to 48.3 million gallons.

While beer and wine consumption was down, hard liquor use grew by almost four percent.
