HOUSTON -- Retail gasoline prices are up this week across Texas for the second week in a row.
The weekly AAA Texas gas price survey released Friday says regular self-serve is averaging $2.71 per gallon in the 11 Texas cities covered by the survey. That's up 3 cents from last week. Nationally, prices rose 3 cents to an average of $2.82 per gallon.
Auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau says gas pump prices are starting to reflect skyrocketing crude oil prices. She says that with crude prices topping $90 per barrel, the upward price trend should continue.
Amarillo has the state's most expensive gas, averaging $2.84 per gallon of regular, self-serve. That's 4 cents more than last week. Houston has the state's cheapest gas at $2.62 per gallon, despite a 4-cent increase.
