TRAVEL AND GAS PRICES

Gas prices in Texas crept up two cents in the last week to average $2.39 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

AAA Texas reports prices in San Antonio also rose two cents to average $2.29.

This marks the first time since mid-April that statewide gas prices increased week-to-week.

The price increase is due to a rise in crude oil prices and record-breaking demand for retail gasoline.

AAA predicts 3.5 million Texans will travel this Independence Day. That’s the most ever since AAA began forecasting July 4th holiday travel in 2000.
