Retail gasoline prices down a penny across Texas

HOUSTON (AP) -- Retail gasoline prices across Texas have slipped a penny this week as the summer driving season winds down.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump reached $3.41 per gallon. Drivers nationally are paying an average $3.59 per gallon — up 3 cents in the past week.

The association survey found Amarillo with the most expensive gasoline in Texas at $3.50 per gallon. El Paso had the cheapest gasoline statewide at $3.34 per gallon.

AAA officials say the Labor Day holiday, which was Monday, marked the traditional end of the summer driving period.
