Prices could drop to as low as $2 per gallon, according to a St. Louis AAA executive.
If you’ve got a vacation planned in the near future, there’s good news for you: gas prices are going down. In fact, the per-gallon price has hit its lowest point this year—on average, about $3.10 per gallon in the St. Louis area. “The biggest trend on gasoline prices is the significant reduction in crude oil,” said Mike Right, AAA’s St. Louis-based vice president of public affairs, noting that there has been about a 30 percent price-drop for crude oil since May. “To that, add the fact that inventories of both gasoline and crude oil in the US are quite high, and the demand continues to be very weak,” he said. “We have an abundant supply and an anemic demand—so you can only expect the prices to decline.” To check prices from Eureka or …

Gas prices in the St. Louis area have been rising steadily, and local experts are forecasting the trend will continue. Currently, gas prices in the St. Louis area are averaging $3.89 a gallon, according to AAA of Missouri.

Bush Presidency (sic). $1.57 was the national average. Who got the most campaign money from BIG EVIL OIL? That's right (sic) the Obama Crime Machine. Is the fix in and has it been exposed by the media (sic). Nope. How about groceries? Ain't Hopey Changey great (sic).' OK...So let'…
