ST. LOUIS (News release) – For the first time since March 25, 2009, the national average price of gasoline has dropped below $2 a gallon.
More than two-thirds of gas stations nationwide are selling gasoline at $1.99.
GasBuddy.com reports the national benchmark had previously failed to reach $2 a gallon as fuel prices have been stubbornly slow at dropping in the West, and new refinery issues there may soon lead the national average back up.
The cheapest gas in St. Louis right now is about $1.75 in South City. The most expensive is $1.99 in Clayton, Kirkwood and LaDue, as well as East St. Louis.
