Missouri is averaging the lowest gas prices in the country, according to AAA


ST. LOUIS – Missouri is currently averaging the lowest gas price across the country.

Averaging at $1.78 per gallon, the Show-Me State is seeing the lowest gas prices to start November since 2003 when the price at the pump was $1.42 per gallon, according to AAA Missouri Weekend Gas Watch.

No matter if you’re living in a St. Louis City or Springfield with the highest gas price or the lowest, you are still seeing historically low numbers.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.12.

St. Louis currently has the highest gas price within the state, but it still only sits at $1.82 per gallon. Those Missourians who are lucky enough to live in Springfield are paying the least at $1.65 per gallon.

For those in Jefferson City, an average gallon of unleaded gas will cost you $1.80. Cape Girardeau and Kanas City are around the same with prices around $1.78 per gallon.

Now, when comparing Missouri to the rest of the country, we have a lot to be happy about. Missouri drivers have been paying below $2 a gallon for regular unleaded on average for 235 days, according to AAA historical gas price data. That is the longest streak since the statewide average hit $2 a gallon for the first time in 2005.

COVID-19 concerns continue to keep gasoline demand levels well below last year, which has been driving pump prices lower from this time last year.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
