AAA: Texas Gasoline Retail Prices Down Slightly

Retail gasoline prices are down slightly this week from last week.

The weekly AAA Texas price survey out today says retail prices of regular unleaded self-serve gasoline average $2.27 cents per gallon. That's down about a penny a gallon from the week before.

The costliest gasoline continues to be inDallas, where regular self-serve averages $2.29 cents per gallon. That's down almost a penny. Corpus Christi still has the cheapest gas, averaging $2.15 cents per gallon. That's down two cents.

The national average is almost $2.36 cents per gallon -- up almost two cents.

But auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau says there's still downward pressure on gas prices in Texas. But she says that's likely to end near the end of the month, when prices should begin climbing again.
