The Triple-A Texas Weekend Gas Watch says the statewide average gas price in Texas is two-dollars and 20-cents a gallon for regular unleaded. That price is up four-cents from a week ago, and is 12-cents more than a year ago.
The national average is two-49. The pandemic is keeping demand low as people drive fewer miles, but crude oil prices are on the rise. The average price at the pump in Houston is two-17.
