COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Gas prices across Texas dropped by one cent this week.

AAA Texas said Thursday that the statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Texas is now at $2.51. That’s 94 cents less per gallon than last year.

Texans are paying 23 cents less than the national average, which now sits at $2.74.

Drivers in El Paso are paying the most on average at $2.65 per gallon. Drivers in Amarillo are paying the least at $2.42 per gallon.

Pump prices have recently trended higher due to an increase in the price of global crude and localized refinery issues.
