Retail gasoline prices across Texas have declined for a second straight week as drivers prepare for the July Fourth holiday weekend.

AAA Texas reported Tuesday that prices at the pump across Texas slipped 3 cents to settle at $2.57 per gallon. Nationwide gasoline prices are down 2 cents this week to reach an average $2.77 per gallon.

Amarillo has the cheapest gasoline in Texas at $2.49 per gallon. The association survey found El Paso with the most expensive gasoline statewide at $2.66 per gallon.

AAA analysts say drivers are poised to pay the lowest prices at the pump over the July Fourth holiday weekend in at least five years.

Association officials predict 3.1 million Texans will hit the road Wednesday through Sunday, with most traveling by automobile.
