AAA Texas reports the statewide average at the pump in Texas fell 4 cents to an average of $2.44 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

“Gas prices are getting cheaper by the day, little by little,” said Daniel Armbruster with AAA Texas.

San Antonio drivers are paying an average of $2.42 a gallon, down 4 cents from last week.

“With the switchover to winter blend gasoline, consumer demand continuing to slow as we head into fall and Gulf Coast refineries reportedly getting back to normal operations, drivers can expect cheaper prices at the pump as we head into October,” said Armbruster.
