COPPELL (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Retail gasoline prices in Texas and nationwide held steady this week.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump was $2.18 per gallon. Drivers across the U.S. are paying an average $2.34 this week.
The association survey found Amarillo has the cheapest gasoline this week in Texas at an average $2.07 per gallon. El Paso has the most expensive gasoline statewide at an average $2.22 per gallon. Both Dallas and Fort Worth had prices on the higher end with an average cost per gallon of $2.20.
AAA analysts say gasoline demand rose this week, although the continued oversupply caused prices in most parts of the country to decline or remain the same.
