(KETK) – Gas prices across Texas suffered a spike in the past week in reaction to the drone attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, according to a report from AAA Texas.
The statewide gas price average was $2.39, up nearly 12 cents from just one week ago. However, Tyler was paying the least in Texas, with an average price of $2.28 for a gallon of gas.
Despite the spike, gas is still 21 cents cheaper than it was at the same time in 2018. The Texas average one year ago was $2.60.
Due to the attacks in Saudi Arabia, nearly 6 million barrels of oil have been taken out of the market. The country says they should get production back to normal by the end of the month.
