Memorial Day Gas Prices
Triple-A Texas is reporting the average price at the pump statewide as reached $3.43 per gallon.
Nationwide retail gasoline prices jumped a nickel this week to hit $3.65 per gallon. Amarillo has the most expensive gas in Texas at $3.70, and the survey says Corpus Christi has the cheapest gasoline at $3.32 but as of Friday there are places in Victoria even lower than that at $3.22 a gallon.
AAA said the demand for fuel is expected to increase with the Memorial Day holiday marking the unofficial start of summer. They predict 2.9 million Texans will travel 50 miles or more from home during the holiday period: about a one-percent increase from last year.
