Gas Prices Surge Nationwide

Local News

Gas prices are on the uptick across Texas as spring arrives, and drivers across the RGV are feeling it.

According to Triple A, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in Texas is currently at $2.38. 

In Brownsville there has been an eleven-cent increase. You can expect to pay $2.29, and slightly higher in McAllen at $2.30.

Last week drivers there were gassing up at an average of $2.18 for regular unleaded.

Triple A attributed the surge to warmer weather causing more people to hit the road, coupled with shrinking supplies as refineries go offline.
