The cheapest gasoline in Texas was once again found in El Paso and San Antonio at $2.80 a gallon.
The state's most expensive gasoline is $2.89 a gallon in Texarkana, where it soared 8 cents from last week.
Oil prices closed at $91.50 a barrel Thursday, a $3.80-a-barrel jump in three days of trading.
