AAA on Tuesday reported the average price at the pump across Texas was $3.16 per gallon. Nationwide gasoline prices are down 3 cents to settle at $3.41 per gallon.
The association survey found Beaumont has the cheapest gasoline at $3.06 per gallon. Drivers in El Paso face the highest gasoline prices this week at an average $3.30 per gallon.
