HOUSTON -- The average price across Texas for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline increased 4 cents this week.

AAA Texas reported Thursday the average price increased to $3.07. Motorists in Texarkana are paying the most, with an average of $3.12 per gallon. Drivers in Beaumont are paying the least at $3.02 per gallon. Drivers in Houston are paying at least $3.06, while drivers in Galveston are paying $3.04

The average price for fuel in Texas is 19 cents less than the national average of $3.26.

AAA Texas says gas prices may be impacted by what happens regarding the "fiscal cliff" -- budget cuts and tax hikes that would kick in on Jan. 1 unless the White House and Congress agree on a budget deal. The group says a deal will likely been seen as an economic positive, sending prices higher, while no deal could lower prices.
