Demand for gasoline is rebounding as many visitors are expected to visit or travel the state in the coming days for the solar eclipse. Gasoline stock supplies dropped slightly week over week. Meanwhile, the price for crude remains higher. West Texas Intermediate is now $85 per barrel.

“The statewide gas price average only saw a penny increase on the week ,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “In the coming days summer blend gasoline will come on to the market and that could push price averages up another five to twenty cents.”
