According to the Energy Information Administration, gasoline demand has increased slightly from last week while gasoline supply decreased. Summer blend gasoline is coming onto the market, which is more expensive. The combination of all three factors is leading to higher fuel prices for Texas drivers.

“The ingredients are just right to force fuel prices higher across much of Texas,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “Summer-blend gas, increasing demand and lower supply are leading to more expensive gasoline.”
