Texas gas prices have risen 3.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.88/g today, Monday, June 29, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 23.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 52.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Texas is priced at $1.49/g today while the most expensive is $2.35/g, a difference of 86.0 cents per gallon. The national average price of gasoline has risen 3.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.17/g today. The national average is up 19.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 53.4 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“Gasoline prices have continued to rise across the U.S., a streak that enters its ninth week, but with a resurgence in COVID-19 cases across several states and with Pay with GasBuddy gasoline demand data showing the first weekly drop in gasoline demand since Memorial Day and just the second one since March, there may eventually be a small reckoning in the price of gasoline,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Last week, U.S. gasoline demand fell 0.4%, not exactly a staggering figure, but data from later in the week pointed to much more noticeable drops, which may be a coming trend as authorities in some U.S. states rescind their re-openings. Motorists across the country will likely be influenced by what develops in those areas- improvement and a slowdown in COVID would cause gas prices to continue rising, while a continued resurgence in COVID-19 cases and a drop in gasoline demand will mean lower gas prices.”
