AAA Texas says you'll pay three cents less compared to this day last week.

The average statewide price is $2.34 a gallon.  Spokesperson Daniel Armbruster says crude oil prices have dropped close to where they were right before the drone attacks on the Saudi oil facilities.

Armbruster says, "El Paso drivers are paying the most at $2.62 a gallon. Drivers in Denison and Sherman are paying the least at $2.24 a gallon."

He says drivers along the West coast are dealing with higher prices after a number of refinery outages. 

Drivers in Dallas are paying $2.31 a gallon. Fort Worth drivers are paying $2.38 a gallon.

AAA Texas says the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.66 a gallon, which is a penny more compared to this day last week
