Gas prices continue to rise sharply across Texas with the average price of regular unleaded hitting $3.37 a gallon on Thursday, March 3, according to the American Automobile Association. The rise is due to global supply chain demands.
The current per-gallon rate is about 30 cents more compared to February and roughly 92 cents more compared to March 2021.
Despite the jump, per-gallon rates are still significantly less than the national average, which is at $3.728.
