ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Gas prices are rising across the country, but they’re dropping right here in St. Louis.
Over the last week, the average price for a gallon of gas in St. Louis has dropped eight cents. It’s now $2.24 per gallon in comparison to the national average, which saw a rise in prices of more than a cent.
This is all according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of close to 1,000 gas stations in St. Louis.
The survey also shows there are just 405 gas stations in the country selling gasoline at $2 a gallon or less. That’s far below this time last year, when more than 80,000 stations were at that level.
