HOUSTON (AP) – The average retail gasoline price in Texas is two cents shy of setting a record.
The current Texas average is $3.07 a gallon, and the all-time statewide record high is $3.09 a gallon, according to the weekly Triple-A Texas gas price survey released Friday.
Seven of the eleven Texas regions surveyed set new record highs for gas prices this week.
San Antonio gas prices rose eight cents to an average of $3.03 a gallon. It is the lowest average price but a record for San Antonio.
Texarkana once again has the state?s highest average at $3.14 a gallon, which is also a record.
"Record crude oil prices above $102 a barrel propelled pump prices to new highs this week," said Triple-A Texas spokesman Rose Rougeau.
These are average per-gallon prices of regular, self-serve gasoline in Texas and nationally, as well as the change from last week, according to the Triple-A Texas Weekend Gas Watch released Friday:
