Joshua Zuber with AAA Texas/New Mexico says the statewide gas price average in Texas is $2.51 a galllon. He says that's three cents less compared to this day last week. It's twelve cents less compared to this day last year. 

The price is down seven cents a gallon in Dallas and Fort Worth at an average of $2.57 a gallon.

Zuber says, "Gasoline stocks remain ample amid a recent dip in demand, which could be one reason we are seeing pump prices starting to roll back. It is too soon to know if this downward trend will continue, but it is certainly a welcome relief for motorists during the summer driving season."

He says they'll be watching to see if oil prices will be impacted by further U.S. and China trade talks and tensions in the Middle East.

Drivers in Midland are paying the most at $2.68 a gallon while drivers in McAllen are paying the least at $2.36 a gallon.
