 Holiday gas prices rose sharply this week in Texas, according to the weekly Triple A Texas gas price survey.

The survey report released today finds retail prices for regular, self-serve gasoline is averaging two dollars 19 cents per gallon statewide. That's seven cents more than last week.

Nationally, the price is averaging two dollars 30 cents per gallon -- a nickel increase from last week.

Auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau (roo-ZHOH') says it's too early to predict whether those higher pump prices will continue the rest of the year. She notes that there have been no major storms or refinery problems to affect retail prices, but consumer demand for gasoline has been increasing.

Amarillo has the most expensive gas in Texas, with an average of two dollars 25 cents per gallon. That's up six cents from last week. Galveston-Texas City has the cheapest gas, averaging two dollars 14 cents per gallon. That's up seven cents from last week.
