Gasoline prices off in Texas, Fort Worth area
The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.44 this week, 4 cents less than last week, AAA Texas reports today in its Weekend Gas Watch.
The Fort Worth average was off 6 cents, to $3.39. The national average is $3.62, off 3 cents.
AAA Texas said “demand for gasoline in the U.S. has decreased. The MasterCard SpendingPulse report showed about a 6 percent decline in demand compared to last week. Market analysts say with the recent U.S. jobs report showing no growth, and continued global economic concerns, there is an expectation that a weaker economy will demand less oil. “
