Headline Goes Here

IRVING, Texas - Retail gasoline prices across Texas have slipped by a penny this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump fell to $3.28. The average price fell by 3 cents last week and now is down by 14 cents compared to the same time last year.

Nationwide gasoline prices stand at $3.44, down from $3.47 last week.

El Paso has the most expensive gasoline in Texas this week at $3.36 per gallon. The association survey found Amarillo with the cheapest at $3.17 per gallon.

AAA says gas prices are trending downward because of stable global supplies that are not being affected by tensions in Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere.
