Retail Gas Prices Jump 7 Cents Across Texas

HOUSTON (AP) – Retail gasoline prices across Texas have jumped an average 7 cents this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported its survey found the average price per gallon has reached $3.22. The association’s survey found that nationwide gasoline prices rose 6 cents in the past week, to hit $3.38 per gallon.

Texarkana, Dallas and Fort Worth have the most expensive gasoline, at $3.27 a gallon. The cheapest gasoline in Texas was found in El Paso, reporting $3.04 per gallon.

AAA says analysts believe gasoline prices have gone up due to strained relations by the U.S. and Europe with Iran.
