The Triple-A Texas Weekend Gas Watch says the statewide average gas price in Texas is $3.01 a gallon for regular unleaded. That price is up five-cents from a week ago, and is 90-cents higher than a year ago. The national average is $3.35. The supply and demand for gasoline are both slightly higher, but elevated crude oil prices are keeping pump prices high as well. The average price at the pump in Austin is $2.96.
