Austin Gas Prices Inching Up

Mar 29, 2012

Gas prices are on the rise nationally, and Austin is no exception.

The price of gas in Texas has gone up another six cents this week, to $3.82 a gallon, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report. That's up 25 cents over the last 4 weeks.

The price spike mirrors one hitting the entire country. But gas here is still a dime cheaper than the national average. Austin customers pay $3.75 at the pump, up from $3.58 a month ago.

Of the state's major metro areas, people in Dallas-Fort Worth pays the most at $3.90. Amarillo residents pay the least, at $3.64.
