For many of you the long Memorial Day weekend starts now,Thursday afternoon. As you are probably painfully aware gas prices take a jump during the Memorial Day holiday. The price increase started last week. Let's see if it will continue to rise!
Triple-A Texas Thursday reports the price of regular grade self
serve at the pump rose by 9 cents this wee to average $2.26 per
gallon. That's about 25 cents higher than last month but about
$1.40 per gallon less one year ago. The national average rose 9 cents to $2.36 per gallon.
San Antonio has the cheapest gasoline in Texas at $2.21 per
gallon. That's about 9 cents below last week. The most expensive
gas in Texas is in El Paso, where regular self serve averages $2.30
per gallon, 16 cents more than last week.
The auto club says increased crude-oil prices are also fueling
the retail price increase, as is the annual shift to more-expensive
summer gasoline blends.
Gasoline prices in Bryan-College Station at this writing ranged from $2.15 per gallon at the Bryan Wal-Mart to $2.35 at several spots around the community and at Wellborn and Rock Prairrie it's$2.41 a gallon.
