COPPELL (AP) — Retail gasoline prices in Texas and across the nation are up this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump statewide increased 2 cents to reach $2.62 per gallon. Drivers across the U.S. are paying a penny more for gasoline this week at an average $2.85 per gallon.

The survey found that Corpus Christi averages this week are $2.58 per gallon . That average is down a penny from last week and up about 2½ cents from last month.

The association survey found San Antonio has the cheapest gasoline in Texas this week at an average $2.52 per gallon. The most expensive gasoline statewide was in Midland at an average $3.06 per gallon.

AAA officials say record demand heading into the Labor Day holiday weekend caused gas prices to increase slightly from the prior week.
