WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Texas gas prices are now the lowest in the nation, according to AAA Texas.

The statewide gas price average in Texas is $3.49 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel while the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.99.

Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Texas, drivers in College Station are paying the most on average at $3.72 per gallon while drivers in the Brownsville-Harlingen area are paying the least at $3.19 per gallon.

For the eighth consecutive week, the Texas statewide fuel price average has fallen.

“Retail gasoline prices in Texas fell for the eighth consecutive week,” said AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster. “While gas prices will likely keep dropping in the near term, it is unclear how long the trend will last. Demand for fuel jumped seven percent across the U.S. this week and regional fuel supplies fell by around three percent.”

Drivers in Hawaii are paying the most at $5.39 on average for a gallon of regular unleaded.
