COPPELL (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Retail gasoline prices across Texas and nationwide are up this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide price at the pump rose 6 cents this week to reach an average $2.25 per gallon. Drivers across the U.S. saw a 3-cent increase to push the average gasoline price to $2.40 per gallon.

The association survey found that San Antonio has the lowest gasoline price statewide this week at $2.15 per gallon. Dallas and Fort Worth have the highest average gas prices in Texas at $2.34 per gallon.

AAA experts say gasoline prices rose over the last week, led by the switch to more expensive summer-blend gasoline and increased driving demand.

The price of crude oil was also impacted after last week's U.S. missile strike at a Syrian airbase and today the U.S. dropped anon-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan.
