COPPELL (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Retail gasoline prices in Texas and nationwide have declined this week.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide average price at the pump slipped a penny to settle at $2.15 per gallon. Gasoline prices across the U.S. declined 3 cents to reach an average $2.33 per gallon.
The association survey found San Antonio has the cheapest gasoline this week in Texas at an average $2.08 per gallon. Drivers in El Paso face the highest gasoline prices at an average $2.21 per gallon.
Gas prices in Dallas averaged $2.18 a gallon, while the price was just a bit cheaper in Fort Worth at $2.16.
Association experts say the slight decrease in gasoline prices can be attributed adequate supply and less demand in January, with colder weather and fewer road trips following the holidays.
