COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Retail gasoline prices across Texas fell by a nickel this week for an average price at the pump of $2.43 per gallon.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported that the national average also dropped by 5 cents this week, settling at $2.62.

In the Texas metro areas, drivers in Texarkana are paying the least at $2.32 per gallon while motorists in El Paso are paying the most, $2.63 per gallon.

AAA says the last time average prices fell this low for this week was 2009.

One factor is lower global prices for crude oil.
