The average price of regular-grade gasoline dropped 7 cents per gallon over the past two weeks.
That puts the price average price at $2.53 per gallon across the nation.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday that gas prices responded to falling crude oil cost and the United States having a crude oil surplus.
But, the price at the pump is 19 cents higher than it was this time last year.
The highest average price in the nation is still in the Golden State of California were you can find the price per gallon at $3.54 in the San Francisco Bay area.
Here is Joplin, you can find gas as low as $1.89 per Gallon, one of the lowest in the country.
