Retail gasoline prices in Texas and the rest of the country have declined an average 3 cents per gallon this week.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump statewide was $2.18 per gallon. Drivers across the U.S. are paying an average $2.34 per gallon this week.
The association survey found that Amarillo and Texarkana have the cheapest gasoline statewide this week at an average $2.08 per gallon. El Paso and Galveston have the most expensive gasoline in Texas this week at an average $2.24 per gallon.
The latest news from around North Texas.
AAA officials attribute the decline in retail gasoline prices to an unseasonable oversupply in the U.S. market, record high refinery production rates, moderate demand and a recent drop in crude oil prices.
