Average gasoline prices in Texas have risen 6.9 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.76/g today, Monday, April 25, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 13,114 stations in Texas. Prices in Texas are 10.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and stand $1.16/g higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the lowest price in Texas on Sunday was $3.35/g while the highest was $4.79/g, a difference of $1.44/g.

“For the first time in over a month, the national average price of gasoline has risen. Primarily, this was due to oil prices that had jumped the prior week, pushing up the price that stations pay for fuel and thus causing them to raise prices,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “The rise has been quite tame in most areas, while others have continued to gently decline. But, with the French election now behind us, there is risk that the EU could pursue harsher sanctions on Russia’s energy, which could cause oil prices to rise if it happens – something motorists should be on the watch for. In addition, U.S. oil inventories continue to decline, putting additional pressure on prices as the nation’s SPR continues to drain and Russia’s war on Ukraine remains ongoing. The global imbalance between supply and demand that led to these higher prices continues for the time being.”

The national average price of gasoline has risen 4.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.11/g today. The national average is down 13.3 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands $1.24/g higher than a year ago, according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 11 million weekly price reports covering over 150,000 gas stations across the country.
