Gas prices fall in Missouri ahead of Thanksgiving

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Experts say the statewide gas price average in Missouri is now the lowest it has been since February.

The statewide gas price average in Missouri is $3.22 for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel, according to the AAA Missouri Weekend Gas Watch.

“Drivers hitting the road for Thanksgiving will be met with some of the lowest gas prices of the year.” said AAA spokesperson Nick Chabarria. “As the holiday approaches, drivers in some areas could see local station prices below $2 per gallon – a price not seen since January 2022.”
