Kansas 3rd in nation for lowest gas prices

Good news for holiday travelers: gas prices have dipped slightly across the state, making Kansas 3rd in the nation for having the least-expensive gas. The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Kansas is a little over $3; Oklahoma and Missouri are slightly lower.


The national average price is $3.26 a gallon.

AAA Vice President Jim Hanni says it's a pretty good situation for Kansas motorists right now.

Hanni says an extra day in the holiday travel period this year is helping the situation. 93 percent of travelers have hit the highways in our region, choosing to drive over alternative modes of transport.
