IRVING (January 16, 2014) Average retail gasoline prices across Texas held steady this week at $3.12 per gallon, AAA-Texas said Thursday.
AAA said the statewide average compares to a national average of $3.30 per gallon, which is down a penny from last week.
The most expensive gasoline statewide was in Fort Worth at $3.19 per gallon and Amarillo has the cheapest price at the pump at $2.98 per gallon, AAA said.
AAA says prices in some areas have increased because of extremely cold weather causing refinery issues.
Officials say subzero temperatures have also decreased demand for gasoline, which could put some downward pressure on prices.
