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. 

In Burnet County, the average cost of regular unleaded fuel was $3.264 per gallon March 3, according to AAA. The average price was slightly higher in Llano County at $3.321. 

According to AAA, $3.985 is the highest recorded average price of regular unleaded gas in Texas. Gas prices hit that high on July 17, 2008.
