Gas prices took a pretty good jump in Lubbock after the massive attack on oil refineries in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

  • On Friday, the average price in Lubbock was $2.20, now the average price is $2.30.
  • Lubbock has seen most of the increase it’s going to experience. Now that more than half the Saudi refineries are re-opened gas prices should be trending down again soon.
