LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD)- If you are running low on gas and plan to fill up your gas tank, expect to pay more at the pump. Gas around town is anywhere from 5 to 8 cents higher this morning than this time Thursday.
The increase comes after the refineries cut back production over the week, causing the price of energy to go up.
The price of oil is also at a new high for the year so far.
Prices had been holding steady or dropping over the past few weeks.
