Texas gas prices skyrocket; Tyler's gas stations mostly up and going

Gasoline prices skyrocketed over the weekend in Texas and nationwide because of Hurricane Ike, and the further south you go, the less gasoline you're going to find.

We're hearing that there's no gas to be had in Lufkin, though that's not the case in Tyler, where most gas stations are conducting business as usual. There are a few stations that are dry, however.

AAA Texas reported Monday that gasoline was averaging $3.68 per gallon statewide. That's up from Friday, hours before Ike made landfall in Texas, when the statewide retail average was $3.54.

Nationally, the average price of gasoline rose Monday to $3.84 per gallon, compared to $3.67 on Friday.

Texarkana had the highest statewide average price Monday for retail gasoline at $3.81 per gallon.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
