Retail gasoline prices in Texas, nationwide continue to drop

COPPELL, Texas (AP) — Average retail gasoline prices in Texas and across the country continue a steady, month-long decline.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump in the state was $2.32 a gallon, down from $2.39 last week. Average gasoline prices nationally fell to $2.48, a drop from $2.52.

Drivers in Amarillo, compared to other metro regions in Texas, are paying the least at $2.21 a gallon. Motorists in El Paso are paying the most on average, at $2.45.

AAA says gas prices have fallen steadily for the past four weeks and now motorists are seeing gasoline demand drop alongside prices.
