COPPELL, Texas (AP) - The average price for retail gas in Texas has dropped 4 cents this week, settling at an average of $1.96 for a gallon for regular unleaded fuel.

AAA Texas said Thursday that the average is 49 cents less per gallon than last year.

The group says its survey found that drivers in El Paso are paying the most, at $2.09 per gallon. Drivers in Amarillo are paying the least at $1.86.

AAA Texas says the national average price is now $2.12, which is 2 cents less than last week and 52 cents less per gallon than last year.

The group says gas prices across most of the country continue to slide during the peak road-trip season because of abundant supplies.
