Gasoline prices at the pump continue rising with the cost per gallon up 3 cents this week in Texas.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide retail average reached $1.83 a gallon.
Nationally, gasoline prices rose a nickel to $1.95.
AAA Texas reports gasoline prices have jumped 19 cents in the past month, while oil prices have slipped to the $35 per barrel range.
