Gas Prices Turn Up After Weeks of Falling Prices

Allen Corbin, KFYO.com

Gas prices increase in Lubbock and Texas.

According to this week’s KFYO News Gas Price Survey, the average price for retail gasoline in the Hub City is $3.30 per gallon, an increase of two cents from last week’s survey.

The increase in fuel comes the week before most public schools in Texas start the 2013-2014 Academic Year. Motorists in Lubbock were paying more at the pump last year at $3.43 per gallon and even less in August of 2010 at $2.55.

Statewide prices increased a penny to $3.42 a gallon according to AAA Texas. Nationally, prices also fell one cent to $3.53 per gallon.
