COPPELL, Texas (AP) – Retail gasoline prices in Texas and nationwide have declined during the usually busy Thanksgiving holiday travel week.
AAA Texas on Tuesday reported the average price at the pump statewide was down a nickel to settle at $1.92 per gallon. The national average slipped 3 cents to reach $2.13 per gallon.
The association survey found that Amarillo has the cheapest gasoline in Texas this week at an average $1.79 per gallon. Drivers in El Paso have the most expensive gasoline statewide at $1.94 per gallon.
AAA experts say drivers in the southern U.S. continue to enjoy some of the lowest gasoline prices in the country, partly due to proximity to Gulf Coast refineries.
AAA Texas usually announces weekly gasoline prices on Thursdays, but offered details Tuesday due to the holiday week.
