Hurricane Ida temporarily increases gas prices for many Texas drivers, AAA Texas reports


TEXAS – Hurricane Ida may bring temporary gas price volatility to many Texas drivers, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch.

AAA Texas reports the statewide gas price average for drivers is $2.81 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, which is two cents more than last week and 90 cents more per gallon compared to last year.

“Ida’s impact at the pump will be felt for many drivers as we head into the final stretch of the summer driving season this Labor Day holiday weekend,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster. “However, the pump price increases caused by the large hurricane should only be temporary.”
