Texas gas prices have risen 1.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.89/g today, Monday, July 13, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Locally, most prices stayed the same as last week, but a couple dropped by a penny.

“According to GasBuddy data, gasoline demand continues to struggle as of late, hitting some mid-summer blues as coronavirus cases continue to see upward movement in more states, but it hasn’t been a sharp enough drop to push gas prices lower last week,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Based on GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Texas is priced at $0.99/g today, while the most expensive is $2.52/g, a difference of $1.53/g.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 1.1 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.19/g today. The national average is up 8.8 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 60.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Gas prices in Texas are 8.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 60.3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“While prices for this time of year remain the lowest in over 15 years, it’s still easy to spend more than you need to on gas by letting your guard down, especially now with several states raising gasoline taxes in the midst of summer,” DeHaan said. “For now, I continue to expect gas prices to move sideways — that is — the lack of a clear national trend for now, some will rise, some will fall, as we remain in a COVID-19 holding pattern.”
