HOUSTON — Retail gasoline prices across Texas dipped 6 cents this week to settle at $3.04 per gallon.
AAA Texas on Thursday reported the latest statewide prices at the pump, as the national average declined a nickel to reach $3.28 per gallon.
In Killeen, prices were seen as low as $2.93 for a gallon at 7-Eleven at the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and Willow Springs. Regular gas at Fort Hood also was $2.93 per gallon, and gas at dozens of other stations in the area was less than $3 a gallon.
Amarillo has the most expensive gasoline statewide with an average $3.06 per gallon.
Analysts expect retail prices to fall through year’s end due to sufficient supplies, flat demand and the shift to cheaper winter-blend gasoline amid falling crude oil prices.
