Price At The Pump Jumps Across Texas

IRVING (January 31, 2013)--Retail gasoline prices across Texas went up eight cents this week, AAA-Texas reported Thursday.

AAA said the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Texas is $3.24, up from last week's average of $3.16, but still 18 cents below the national average.

Dallas drivers are paying an average of $3.30, the highest in the state.

El Paso has the cheapest average gas at $2.99.

AAA says prices are being driven up by news about a strengthening economy and refinery issues in five states.

Prices could rise more as a refinery in New Jersey is set to close at the end of the next month, which will likely require more shipments of Gulf Coast and overseas gas to the Northeast.
