No end in sight to Texas gasoline price spike

retail gasoline prices as the prices at the pump climb deeper into
record territory.
The weekly Triple-A Texas gas price survey released today shows
regular self-serve is averaging $3.33 per gallon across the state.
That's a nickel higher than last week and 55 cents per gallon
higher than a year ago.
Even so, auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau (roo-ZHOH') says
Texas has one of the lowest average retail prices for gasoline in
the nation. Nationally, the price is averaging $3.418, up 6 cents
from last week. California has the highest statewide average of
$3.82 per gallon.
Back in Texas, San Antonio has the lowest average price for
regular self-serve at $3.27. That's a local record-high a nickel
