Retail gasoline prices across Texas have fallen by a nickel this week as demand weakens with the summer driving season over.
According to Triple-A Texas prices dropped two-cents overnight: the statewide average for a gallon of regular sits at 3.34.
That's 30-cents less than what motorists were paying this time last year. Amarillo drivers shelling out the most at the pump at 3.41 a gallon. There is a three way tie for the cheapest gas between Corpus, Fort worth, and Beaumont drivers all paying an average of $3.30. However, Victoria’s even cheaper with prices as low at $3.19 a gallon at some stations.
Analysts said prices will continue to fall thanks to lower demand coupled with plentiful supplies and a switch to cheaper winter-gas blends.
