HOUSTON -- A travel group survey finds retail gasoline prices across Texas have dropped by an average of a nickel.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide average is $3.41 per gallon, down from $3.46 a week ago. The national per gallon average also dropped by a nickel, from $3.59 down to $3.54.

Motorists in Amarillo continue to pay the least in the state, with the average there at $3.34 per gallon. Galveston drivers pay the most at the pump at $3.44.

AAA says drivers in Texas are paying about $48 to fill up a 14-gallon tank.

The travel group says gas prices could remain flat or even decline as long as hurricanes don't threaten Gulf Coast infrastructure and refineries continue to operate smoothly.
