HOUSTON (AP) - No city in the weekly Triple-A Texas gasoline
price survey fell short of a record-high pump price this week.
The survey released today shows regular self-serve is averaging
a record-high $3.47 per gallon, 13 cents higher than last week.
Nationally, the average price rose 14 cents to $3.56 per gallon.
The reason is the stratospheric price of crude oil, which tops
$115 per barrel today.
The most expensive gasoline in Texas is found in Fort Worth,
where the average climbed 13 cents this week to a record $3.49 per
gallon. The state's cheapest gas is in San Antonio, where the price
climbed 14 cents this week to $3.41 per gallon.
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
