El Paso Gas Prices Jump
El Paso - Gas prices jumped six cents in the past week.
The weekly AAA survey now puts regular unleaded in the Sun City at $2.68 a gallon.
That is higher than any major city in the state.
AAA says gasoline averaged $2.57 a gallon in Texas. That compares to a national average of $2.71.
The auto club statement cites a slightly stronger economy and a soft dollar for strengthening crude oil prices around $80 a barrel, which is only now becoming felt at Texas gas pumps.
The cheapest gasoline in Texas is found in Houston and San Antonio, where it's averaging $2.52 per gallon.
