Gas Prices
By  | 

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Motorists in Arkansas are enjoying the lowest gas prices in the United States.

AAA says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Arkansas on Monday was $1.95 - the lowest in the nation. The average price was two cents higher in Missouri, but stations in Springfield were charging around $1.95.

The average gas price was $1.96 a gallon in Texas, $1.97 in Oklahoma, and $1.98 in Kansas, Mississippi and South Carolina.

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline has increased for seven consecutive days and now stands at $2.18 per gallon. The increase is because of recent increases in crude oil prices.
