Drivers in Texas are getting some relief at the pump as retail gasoline prices tumbled 8 cents this week.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price for regular unleaded fell to $1.74 a gallon. The association attributed the decline to continued lower demand from drivers.
The nationwide price for gasoline slipped almost 8 cents, to $1.88 a gallon.
One year ago the cost per gallon was $3.06 across Texas.
Association spokeswoman Sarah Schimmer says experts are finding the oil market "continues to reflect chaotic price movement."
