Prices at the pump continue to soar as the conflict in Ukraine continues

EL PASO, Texas - Drivers are paying an average of $3.38 a gallon for regular unleaded fuel in Texas according to the latest report.

The AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch show rose 17-cents from a week ago.

El Paso drivers are seeing prices at the pump averaging $3.58, while drivers in Amarillo are paying the least at $3.24.

However, ABC-7 noticed today many gas stations locally raised their price for a gallon of gas by 30 cents.

Experts say the spiking gas prices are similar to what we see after a major hurricane. The volatility in the fuel market in the recent weeks is due to the war between Russia and Ukraine according to AAA.

Uncertainty over Russia's large crude oil supplies getting to the world market due to the conflict has caused the spike to over $100 a barrel which means gas prices will continue to soar as drivers prepare for the spring travel season.

"Oil prices have skyrocketed to 11-year highs," said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster.

          1. And don’t forget, he was also in Oslo and Germany last week, at least in his own mind.

    1. Bnmp. Listen moron. The country was paralyzed because of pandemic. Catch up in supply and demand. Don’t think they covered that in 7th grade you high school drop out level thinker.

      1. The pandemic caused the high gas prices? You’re an idiot. There was less demand for gasoline during the first year of the pandemic since nobody went anywhere. Less demand equals less supply meaning lower prices nitwit. You should consider getting a high school and college education.

    1. There are no Marxists in our government. First look up the word ‘marxist’ then get some books on civics and government and read them.

      1. The pandemic? Do you believe everything CNN broadcasts? After over 2 years, do you still wear a mask when you sell candy at the international bridge in Juarez?

    1. Delusional? You don’t own a Tesla or a lawnmower. If you haven’t bought any gas for 3 months then why do you want gasoline at .50 cents per gallon? You’re an idiot. Pathological liar.

    1. We are still a net exporter of oil and natural gas. Keystone will never happen. It had nothing to do with current gas prices. There will never be anymore drilling on federal land. The fossil fuel era is at an end.

      1. Keystone and drilling on federal land will all be back after this November election. Especially after Trump wins the 2024 election. Never say never nitwit.

        1. Trump will be in prison by then. He was a traitor and criminal who tried to overthrow our government. He failed at that and failed as president. Everything he touches is a failure. You know that as well as I do along with 81 million voters

          1. Yeah right. You are so delusional. How’s that 6 – 3 conservative SCOTUS treating you leftist nitwits.

  1. They will let prices go up so far that you have no choice but to buy electric. By then though everyone will be broke and unable to afford electric. They will stay rich and you will have less means. Get liberal sheep to praise you for enslaving people while accusing dissenters of crimes. Its almost comical

    1. How’s that Tesla you don’t own treating you nitwit? If you have an EV then why do you want gasoline to be $.75 per gallon. Your buddy senile Joe is letting gasoline prices up so moronic people so people like you will buy EVs that they can’t afford.

    1. Too funny. I first saw those at a Chevron station on the Eastside. They are on pumps all over the country now. The best anti senile Joe movement.
