COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Texas and nationwide retail gasoline prices held steady this week.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported drivers statewide are paying an average $2.05 per gallon. The weekly association survey found U.S. drivers are paying an average $2.29 per gallon.

Beaumont has the cheapest gasoline this week across Texas at $1.97 per gallon. Drivers in El Paso face the highest price at the pump, at an average $2.15 per gallon.

Texas motorists are paying an average $1.12 less per gallon, compared to a year ago.

Experts cite relatively low crude oil prices, declining domestic demand for gasoline following the end of summer and the switch to cheaper-to-produce winter-blend gasoline.
