Crude oil prices have fallen since the start of June. At the time of this release, West Texas Intermediate was trading at $73 per barrel. That’s down from $79 at the end of May. Crude oil is the main ingredient in gasoline and makes up 50-60 percent of the cost of each gallon of fuel.

“Texans are seeing savings at the pump, which is good news for those taking a summer road trip,” said AAA Texas spokesperson, Daniel Armbruster. “If crude oil prices continue to move lower, drivers could see more savings at the pump through June.”
