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.
