AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price per gallon at the pump reached $3.38. Nationwide gasoline prices also rose, increasing 13 cents to hit $3.55 per gallon.

The association says Dallas and Fort Worth have the most expensive gasoline statewide at $3.41 per gallon. Drivers in El Paso have the cheapest gasoline at $3.14 per gallon.
