Retail gasoline prices bounced up across Texas, with double-digit increases in some cities. The weekly AAA Texas price survey released Thursday showed a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was retailing for an average price of $3.51. That's 8 cents more than last week but a dime less than the national average, which also increased.

The auto club says that besides a rise in crude oil prices, prices at the pump faced upward pressure from refiners' seasonal switch to a cleaner-burning, more expensive summer blend.

The cheapest gasoline in Texas is found in Corpus Christi, where the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded rose by a nickel to $3.43. The most expensive gasoline is in Fort Worth, where the average price jumped 14 cents to $3.58 per gallon.
