Texans Thankful for Lower Gas Prices

Gasoline averaging $1.76 per gallon

Texans hitting the road for Thanksgiving are finding retail gas prices at levels to give thanks for.

The weekly AAA Texas gasoline price survey released Wednesday found self-serve, regular was averaging $1.75 per gallon. That's 13 cents lower than last week.

Nationally, the average price per gallon fell 16 cents to $1.86 per gallon.

The most expensive gasoline this week was in El Paso, where it averaged $1.92 per gallon.

The cheapest gas is in Amarillo, at $1.66 per gallon.

The auto club expects 7.8 percent of all U.S. travel during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to be in Texas, AAA Texas spokeswoman Sarah Schimmer said. She said 2.5 million Texans plan to be driving.
