HOUSTON (AP) — Retail gasoline prices have risen an average 4 cents this week across Texas.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump has reached $3.53 per gallon. The nationwide retail price for gas increased by a nickel to hit $3.71 per gallon.

The association survey found that Dallas, Austin and Houston have the most expensive gasoline, at $3.54 per gallon. The least expensive gasoline in Texas is in El Paso, at $3.28 per gallon.

AAA says higher oil prices amid tensions with Iran and increased demand during the summer continue to push U.S. gasoline prices higher.
