Retail gasoline prices up penny across Texas, nationally

COPPELL, Texas (AP) — Retail gasoline prices across Texas and nationally have risen a penny this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide price at the pump was $2.23 per gallon. Drivers across the country are paying an average $2.41 per gallon.

The association survey found Dallas has the most expensive gasoline in Texas this week at an average $2.30 per gallon. Beaumont has the cheapest gasoline at $2.13 per gallon.

AAA experts say retail gasoline figures remain heavily influenced by the global price of crude and the ability of domestic refineries to manage maintenance.
