A survey finds that retail gasoline prices across Texas have jumped a nickel in the past week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price statewide has reached $3.57 per gallon.

The association says gas prices nationally rose at a higher pace, adding 13 cents to average $3.74 per gallon.

Dallas had the most expensive gasoline in Texas this week, at $3.59 a gallon. Amarillo had the least expensive price at the pump, at $3.41.

AAA says continuing tensions in the Middle East have continued to pressure market crude oil prices, leading to concerns about future supplies.
