Gas Prices climb as Texans plan holiday road trips

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — It’s been a while since gas prices have gone up.

Joshua Zuber at AAA Texas reports the statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.39.

That’s a two cent jump since last week.

He says the San Antonio average has also gone up a couple of pennies to $2.29.

Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in Midland are paying the most on average at $2.57 while drivers in Brownsville and Harlingen are paying the least at $2.25 per gallon.

Zuber says the price jump is due to higher demand and rising crude oil costs.
