Average retail gasoline prices in Texas have risen 2.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.38/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 13,114 gas outlets in Texas. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.55/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

In Abilene, the average gas price has risen to around $3.40/g as of Monday morning.

Including the change in gas prices in Texas during the past week, prices yesterday were 7.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 13.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 7.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"Gasoline prices have seen an ever so slight increase in the last week across a good portion of the nation, which is certainly good news for spring break travelers," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "For those who may be headed to California, they may be greeted with rising prices to the tune of 10-20 cents per gallon over the next two weeks. For much of the rest of the country, including Florida destinations, prices shouldn't be holding many back from hitting the road. This spring has seen very little volatility so far, and if it remains that way, I may have to revise downward my forecast for gas prices for the rest of April and May, which my wallet would certainly love," DeHaan said.
