HOUSTON -- Memorial Day travelers will face another week of record-high retail gasoline prices across Texas this weekend.

The weekly Triple-A Texas gas price survey released Friday finds regular self-serve is averaging $3.73 per gallon, 5 cents more than last week.

Nationally, the average price rose 6 cents to $3.83 per gallon.

Auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau says that's expected to mean slightly fewer Memorial Day travelers on the roads of Texas this weekend, compared to last year.

The survey showed the most expensive gasoline in Texas is found in Amarillo, where the average price rose 5 cents this week to $3.75. The cheapest gasoline is in El Paso, where the average price rose 4 cents to $3.67 per gallon.
