"Our usual autumn pump price plunge was interrupted by rising oil prices", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a statement. That's caused supply levels to tighten and gas prices to increase.

The auto club said the spike, which occurred in other state as well, was unseasonable but they had predicted last week that increases were expected because of demand issues.

The hurricane season also played a role in gas prices: the highest, according to GasBuddy, was earlier this year just after Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of Texas.
