The latest data from the Energy Information Administration indicates that despite gasoline demand reaching its highest level in two months, supplies continue to build. This is helping to keep pump prices in check. Gas prices will likely fluctuate throughout May and could increase as the busy Memorial Day travel period approaches.

“Despite another week of increasing demand for fuel, supplies are keeping pace,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “Gas prices will likely fluctuate throughout May and could increase as the busy Memorial Day travel period nears.”
