COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Retail gasoline prices across Texas this week remain the same as last week, at $1.76 for a gallon of unleaded fuel.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported that the statewide average is 19 cents less per gallon than last year.

AAA Texas said that drivers in Dallas are paying the most on average at $1.83 per gallon. Drivers in Beaumont and San Antonio are paying the least at $1.70.

The national average price is $2.00, which is the same as last week. In 2015, consumers across the U.S. paid an annual average of $2.40 per gallon, which was the lowest annual average since 2009.

AAA Texas says that barring any unanticipated events dramatically impacting global or domestic supply, the national average is expected to remain below $3 per gallon in 2016.
