HOUSTON (AP) — Gasoline prices across Texas have risen 6 cents for the second consecutive week.

AAA Texas reported Thursday that the average retail price per gallon has reached $3.82.

The association's weekly survey found the national retail price for gasoline jumped 4 cents to $3.92 per gallon.

AAA says the Dallas-Fort Worth area has the state's most expensive gasoline at $3.90 per gallon. Amarillo has the least expensive at $3.64.

The travel agency says the average 14-gallon fill-up is up to about $53.48.

According to AAA, two key issues are keeping oil prices high: tensions with Iran and increased global demand for crude oil.
