IRVING, Texas (AP) — Retail gasoline prices have jumped 8 cents this week across Texas.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price per gallon has reached $3.34.

Gasoline prices are up 3 cents nationally, reaching an average $3.53 per gallon.

The association survey found San Antonio has the cheapest gasoline statewide at $3.24 per gallon. The Dallas-Fort Worth area has the most expensive gasoline at $3.43 per gallon.

AAA analysts expect retail prices to peak by early April due to seasonal refinery maintenance and the switchover to producing summer-blend gasoline that's required by May 1.
