HOUSTON (AP) -

Retail gasoline prices have tumbled 8 cents across Texas during the first week of fall.

AAA Texas on Thursday reported the statewide average price at the pump fell to $3.20 per gallon. The national gas price average declined 6 cents since last week to settle at $3.43 per gallon.

Fort Worth has the cheapest gasoline across Texas at an average $3.15 per gallon. The association survey found Amarillo and the Austin area with the state's most expensive gasoline, going for $3.24 per gallon.

Analysts say retail gasoline prices, barring hurricanes or other disruptions to production and distribution, could continue to fall in the coming months. Experts point to sufficient supplies, flat demand and cheaper winter-blend gasoline as reasons for declining prices.
