Texas gas prices have risen 3.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.80/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 5.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand 43.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“For the first time in seven weeks, GasBuddy data showed average gas prices rose last week, unsurprising given the previous 18% jump in the price of crude oil on promising vaccine news,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “This year has been anything but normal and such news of promising vaccine results will likely rekindle gas prices for a short while. We’re likely to see prices inch up slightly again this week as gas stations continue to try to pass along the rise from last week to retail, but ahead of Thanksgiving, prices should be mostly stable. For now, motorists shouldn’t expect too many fireworks at the pump, but the upcoming release of GasBuddy’s Holiday Travel survey highlights some big changes motorists are making for the last six weeks of the year.”

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in Texas today is $1.44/g while the highest is $2.69/g, a difference of $1.25/g.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.12/g today. The national average is down 4.3 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 49.0 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
