IRVING, Texas — Retail gasoline prices across Texas on average have slipped to less than $2 per gallon for first time since May 2009.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the price at the pump statewide fell 7 cents per gallon this week to settle at $1.95.
The travel association reports nationwide gasoline prices are down 6 cents this week to reach $2.18 per gallon.
Corpus Christi has the most expensive gasoline statewide at $2.02 per gallon. The Dallas-Fort Worth area has the cheapest gasoline at $1.86 per gallon.
