Survey finds Texas retail gasoline prices falling

Staff Report

HOUSTON (AP) - Retail gasoline prices are falling this week across Texas.

The Triple-A Texas gas price survey released today finds the average price of regular-grade, self-sevice gas fell 6 cents this week to $2.90 per gallon. Nationally, the average price also fell 6 cents to $3.03 per gallon.

Auto club spokeswoman Rose Rougeau says the fall is largely the result of a sharp drop in crude oil prices from record levels near $100 per barrel to as low as $87 per barrel. She also cites flattening demand for the holiday season.

Fort Worth has the state's cheapest gas, averaging $2.85 per gallon. Texarkana has the costliest gas in Texas at $2.97 per gallon.
