Texas Retail Gas Price Up By 6 Cent Average

HOUSTON (AP) — Refining cutbacks due to slumping demand and global political and economic tensions are being blamed for climbing gasoline prices in Texas and nationally.

The weekly AAA Texas price survey released Thursday shows the average price of a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline climbed 6 cents over the past week in Texas to $3.45. The national average price is $3.52, 3 cents more than last week.

The state’s most expensive unleaded regular gasoline this week is found in Dallas and Fort Worth and costs $3.49 per gallon, 8 cents more than last week in Dallas and 9 cents more in Fort Worth. The least expensive is found in Amarillo, where the average price fell a dime to $3.28 per gallon.

    Nothing in the world except GREED. I went home at almost 11 p.m. and the price of gas was 3.339 and when I passed the same station at 7:30 a.m. the next morning it ws 3.499. That is just a big bunch of bull. But we don’t need that pipeline so the oil companies could not depend on foreign oil. That is a bunch of hooey too. Could have put a lot of folks to work and maybe helped with gasoline prices. What about all those oil wells out in west Texas that are sitting there in mothballs? We could do a trade with the countries in the Middle East. A bushel of wheat for a barrel of oil. Of course they are not the ones who are making a killing on the gas prices in the US and it is also not the gas station owners. It is the big wigs at the oil companies with their bonuses. Kind of reminds me of American Airlines.
