Demand for gasoline fell slightly week over week as spring break travel is coming to an end. Meanwhile, gasoline supplies have increased. Price fluctuations remain possible as the switchover to the more expensive summer blend gasoline will take place in the coming weeks.

“Gas price hikes are taking a pause, but fluctuations remain possible in the coming days,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “The switchover to the more expensive summer blend fuel is about to get underway, which could push prices up in April.”
