Missouri has the cheapest gas in the country, report says

Missouri has lowest gas prices in U.S.

MISSOURI (KFVS) - The holiday season is upon us and many will spend time driving to see relatives or friends.

A recent report from AAA said Missouri has some of the cheapest gas prices in the country.

The national average for prices ranges from $2 to $3 and the Show Me State is on the low end.

As of Dec. 7 the average is $2.426 and Missouri sits below that around $2.011.

As for the Heartland however, the report shows we have some of the highest prices statewide coming in around $2.25.

Folks in Dunklin County said they're taking advantage of the low prices.

“It made me feel good. It put a little more change in my pocket, and I wish it would stay like this,” said one resident.

So, where does the rest of the Heartland stand? Kentucky is at $2.19 a gallon and folks in Illinois are paying an average of $2.39 at the pump. That is still lower than the national average of $2,44 per gallon.
