Texas gas prices have risen 6.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.16/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 3.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand 2.4 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in the state today is $1.87/g while the highest is $3.19/g, a difference of $1.32/g. The national average price of gasoline has risen 2.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.47/g today. The national average is down 6.4 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 7.3 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

“With oil prices having pushed higher in recent weeks, we saw the national average price of gasoline increase for the second straight week,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Yet with much unknown after a rocky weekend with the COVID-19 coronavirus spreading into new countries, we still could see the current uptick slow with more countries potentially locking down travel.

“Over the last decade, the national average typically begins its seasonal rise on February 9, lasting until May 2, during which the average rise is 54 cents per gallon,” he continued. “This year could look much different based on myriad unknowns that continue to fog the situation. It’s nearly guaranteed that prices will be higher by April and May, but beyond that, the timing remains completely unknown, as does how the coronavirus will threaten overall gasoline demand.”
