DALLAS (KRLD) - Joshua Zuber with AAA Texas says the statewide average is $2.37 a gallon. That's $.25 less a gallon compared to this day last year.

Zuber says, "After brief price spikes following the attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities earlier this month, markets are showing signs of stabilization. Retail gas prices are now falling in many Texas cities. However, drivers may see fluctuations through the end of the month."

He says Tyler drivers are paying the least for gas at $2.28 a gallon. Drivers in El Paso are paying the most at $2.74 a gallon, while those in the Dallas area are paying about $2.39 a gallon. Drivers in Fort Worth are paying around $2.38 a gallon.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.65, which is two cents less compared to this day last week and 22 cents less than the price per gallon at this same time last year.
