Texas gas prices have risen 3.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.84/g on Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 13,114 stations. Gas prices in Texas are 7.7 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 36.0 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

“With oil’s rally to a new COVID-19 high-water mark, gas prices have begun to follow, even as gasoline demand crumbles to some of the lowest levels in months,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “Optimism continues to propel oil markets higher, led by positive news on a COVID-19 vaccine, but should anything change timing wise, we could see a reversal, but for now it remains full steam ahead with markets focused on the promise of oil and gasoline demand rising, or the best potential outcome of the situation. Should the hype be overblown, a correction could happen in the weeks or months ahead. For now, motorists may see more volatility in oil markets then we’ve seen in months.”

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in Texas on Monday is $1.45/g while the highest is $2.69/g, a difference of $1.24/g.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 3.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.16/g today. The national average is up 5.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 42.6 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
