TEXOMA---- As the outside temperatures continue to drop, it seems gas prices are continuing to rise.

According to GasBuddy.com, average retail gas prices in Texas and Oklahoma have risen within the last month, today averaging $3.21 a gallon in Texas and $3.30 a gallon in Oklahoma. A month ago, those prices were averaging $3.07 a gallon in Texas and $3.06 a gallon in Oklahoma.

This compares with the national average which has increased $.18 per gallon in the last month to $3.44.

"I feel we're somewhat being taken advantage of because of the weather situation," Grayson County driver Henry Salisbury said.

So why does it seem drivers paying more at the pump? Some analysts say fuel supplies are starting to decline as refineries reduce their production to perform seasonal maintenance and make the switch to summer fuels.
