Price At The Pump Creeps Up In Texas

IRVING (February 27, 2014) Retail gasoline prices rose by 2 cents to an average of $3.22 a gallon this week across Texas, AAA-Texas reported Thursday.

The price rose by 5 cents a gallon last week.

Gas prices nationally rose by 6 cents to $3.44 per gallon this week.

The association survey found drivers in Amarillo are paying the least amount at $3.15 per gallon while those in Dallas-Fort Worth are paying the most at $3.32.

Pump prices tend to rise as spring approaches because of seasonal factors that include rising demand, refinery maintenance and the switch to a more expensive summer blend of gasoline.

The association says Texans are paying, on average, about $45 to fill up a typical 14-gallon fuel tank.
