How gas prices have changed in El Paso in the last week

Gasoline prices rose by several cents on average nationwide over the last week. Prices remain at $3 per gallon or lower in many Midwestern metro areas and highest in cities on the West Coast.

The increase in prices at the pump represents an early jump at this point in the year, according to analysts who say seasonal upticks in gas prices usually begin several weeks from now.

The price of oil has risen to its highest level since November at $80 a barrel—a trend that would typically put upward pressure on gasoline prices. Those effects, however, have likely been muted by lower demand from drivers. Prices are expected to rise in the coming weeks as warmer temperatures arrive and refiners switch over to cleaner burning fuel blends—which are more expensive—for the summer months.
