Austin Gas Prices Up 30 Cents From '10

By Austin Business Journal

Austin gas prices continued to climb this week, rising 1 cent from seven days ago to about $2.91 per gallon, AAA Texas reported Thursday.

Local drivers are paying about 30 cents more than the same week last year, but less than the national average $3.09 cent per gallon of regular unleaded gas. Statewide, the price climbed 2 cents this week to $2.94 per gallon.

San Antonio reported the least expensive gas in Texas at about $2.89 a gallon, a 1 cent increase from last week. While Fort Worth drivers are paying the most at about $2.97 a gallon, up 6 cents per gallon.

AAA attributed the increase to continued rising oil prices. The amount per barrel has increased to more than $90, up from about $70 during the summer months.
