COPPELL, Texas (AP) — Texas drivers are paying an average of $2.55 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel this week, four cents more since last week.
AAA Texas said Thursday though that the average is still 91 cents less per gallon than last year.
Drivers in El Paso are paying the most at $2.67 per gallon. Drivers in San Antonio are paying the least at $2.46 per gallon.
Texans are paying 21 cents less than the national average of $2.76.
AAA says that for the summer driving season, consumers are on target to pay the lowest prices at the pump since 2009. Relatively low prices at the pump along with a recovering economy have contributed to drivers traveling more during the first quarter of the year than any other year on record.
