Gasoline prices drop 11 cents across Texas

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Retail gasoline prices in Texas dropped by more than a dime this week as recovery continues from Hurricane Ike.

AAA Texas on Thursday afternoon reported the average price per gallon in the state settled at $3.59, down 11 cents from one week ago.

The nationwide average gasoline price tumbled by 13 cents, to reach $3.70.

Ike made landfall Sept. 13, interrupting some oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico.

Association spokeswoman Sarah Schimmer says Ike and related supply issues caused a temporary spike in gasoline prices "that is now reversing itself."

AAA Texas says the cheapest gasoline was found this week in Amarillo, at $3.39 per gallon.

Texarkana had the highest cost at the pump, at $3.68 per gallon.
