(KFVS) -

The average price of gasoline has dropped a penny over the past three weeks, to $2.05 a gallon, which is the lowest since 2009 according to the most recent Lundberg Survey.

The national average is 15 cents lower per gallon than this time last year, and analysts say prices may continue to drop as crude oil costs decline and refineries run at a high rate.
           
The survey found lowest average price of regular gas in the lower 48 states was $1.64 in St. Louis.

But several stations in the Heartland are selling it for cheaper than that. Two stations in Harrisburg have prices listed at $1.61 and $1.62 a gallon. One station in Caruthersville is reported to be selling regular gas at $1.59 a gallon, and two stations in Kennett are selling it for $1.63.

As for the highest average gas prices, those are showing up in Los Angeles at $3.01 per gallon.

Here in the Heartland, KFVS12 found the highest prices in Mount Vernon, with regular gas prices going for $1.73 a gallon, and in Fulton, Kentucky for $1.76.

Diesel prices are also down. The average price is $2.31 per gallon, about 8 cents less than 3 weeks ago.
