AAA: Holiday Travelers To See Low Gas Prices As The Coronavirus Keeps Many Home

Missouri has the cheapest gas prices in the country because fewer people are driving during the coronavirus pandemic.

Gas prices in St. Louis average about $1.82 per gallon, 45 cents less than a year ago and 30 cents below the national average. Drivers across the state have not seen such low prices since November 2003.

People in the St. Louis region are expected to travel more by car this holiday season because of low gas prices. AAA Missouri predicts that families will hit the road this fall to help keep the virus from spreading.

Many people are working from home and limiting travel to help keep the virus from spreading. Those changed routines and low crude oil prices make for cheap gas at the pump, said Nick Chabarria, the Missouri spokesperson for AAA.

2. I am sure that there are places less expensive

I guess they were using averages.
