COPPELL, Texas (AP) - The average retail gasoline price in Texas fell by rose 2 cents per gallon this week but remain the most expensive August prices since 2014.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump statewide was $2.63 per gallon. The average price drivers across the U.S. are paying remained unchanged this week at $2.87 per gallon.
The association survey found San Antonio and McAllen have the cheapest gasoline in Texas this week at an average $2.53 per gallon. Midland has the most expensive gasoline statewide this week at an average $3.08 per gallon.
AAA experts say near-record demand for gasoline in recent weeks forced prices upward, but that demand seems to crested and has begun to fall.
