 HOUSTON (AP) — Prices at the gasoline pump rose an average 8 cents this week in Texas.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average retail cost per gallon statewide reached $1.80.

The nationwide cost rose 6 cents, to hit $1.90 a gallon.

The association survey found San Antonio had the state's least expensive gasoline at $1.76 a gallon. El Paso had the highest price for gasoline, at $1.94.

AAA Texas says the retail cost of gasoline remains about $1 less than in early February 2008.

Association spokesman Dan Ronan says oil inventories continue to rise. He says crude supplies are running at a surplus of more than 50 million barrels.———
