AAA Texas reporting spike in gas prices following attack in Saudi Arabia

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — In the past week, there’s been a 15 cent jump in the average price for a gallon of gas in San Antonio.

Joshua Zuber at AAA Texas tells KTSA News the Alamo City average had been falling in recent weeks. It was down to $2.21 a week ago but today, the average is at $2.36 and may climb again.

Zuber tells us there is a lot of uncertainty is oil prices right now is due to the recent attack on oil production facility in Saudi Arabia.

It provided about 6% of the world’s oil supply.

Zuber says it will take a few weeks for the markets to adjust to the loss of that facility but once that happens, the price you’re paying to fill up your vehicle’s gas tank should actually drop again.

Even with the recent price jump, Zuber reports that Texans are still paying less for a gallon of gas than one year ago.
