Gas prices rise above $2 per gallon

Local News

TEXAS (Nexstar) – Gas prices are up again in Texas and have hit a mark not seen in several weeks.

According to AAA Texas, the statewide average price is up to $2.10/ gallon. That’s up 11 cents from the same day last week but down 17 cents from this time last year.

“Gasoline has been on the rise for the last few weeks due to higher crude oil prices,” AAA Texas Spokesman Daniel Armbruster said in a statement. “However, demand for gasoline remains lower than this time last year, which could result in lower gas prices in the weeks ahead as winter sets in across the country.”

Drivers in El Paso are paying the most on average at the pump at $2.36, according to the data from AAA Texas. However, drivers in the Basin are not far off paying $2.30 in Odessa and $2.26 in Midland, the data shows.

Both of which, fall under the national average which sits at $2.36.
