Gas Prices Shoot Up 9 Cents in One Week

advertisement

Retail gasoline prices in Texas have gone up 9 cents a gallon since last week.

AAA Texas reported on Thursday that the average price per gallon at the pump was $2.56. Prices increased 7 cents nationally to $2.69.

Houston, Galveston and San Antonio had the lowest price at $2.53 a gallon; El Paso had the most expensive gas at $2.67, up 16 cents since last week.

The association says prices have increased 28 cents in the last month, but equal prices from April 2007. Rising oil prices and signs that the recession is over have contributed to gas price increases.
