I don't see what the average matters (probably around 500-600SF nationwide for 2-car width) - you are interested in your particular drive. Measure it - probably about 14-20 feet wide - though if less than 16-18 feet I would consider widening it because less than that does not allow for adequate door opening space between parked cars unless you really hug the edges when you park - and of course if you have pickup/SUV (silly me - you live in Texas - of Course you have at least one pickup), then 18' is about the reasonable minimum.

Below are a couple of links with some ballpark typical cost info - I would expect in your area probably about $4-6/SF depending on whether the base material and subgrade conditions mandate digging it up or it if can be basically paved from the existing material. In some areas of Texas you can get the paving only (say on a driveway where the base was put down but left as a gravel drive) for as little as $3/SF in the simplest cases on a larger drive. On the costs - minimum job normally about $1000-1500 regardless of driveway size, though for concrete drives that minimum is usually met with no problem.
