Gas prices in St. Louis are down significantly from last month

ST. LOUIS – “Fizzed up” might be an understatement for St. Louis drivers. After several weeks of peaks in May and June, gas prices in the region have fallen significantly.

According to the American Automobile Association, the average price of regular unleaded gasoline in the St. Louis metropolitan area is down nearly a dollar in the last month and has been gradually decreasing most days or remaining stable most days since July 4.

The region’s average gas price, currently at $3.85, is 83 cents below the average price a month ago ($4.68). However, prices are still 93 cents higher per gallon compared to this time last year, per AAA gas meter.

The current average price in Missouri is $3.73 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline and $4.79 for diesel, both at least 50 cents below the record highs of mid-June.

Business Insiderreportsthat gas prices have fallen in recent weeks as global demand for crude oil has also fallen. The AAA says supply is also increasing in some regions.

Gasoline in Missouri is cheaper, on average, than in 37 other US states, according to the AAA. The average cost of gas nationwide is currently around $4.13.

AAA recommends the following steps to improve fuel efficiency and save even more at the pump:

  • Slow down and drive the speed limit. Higher speeds result in more drag.
  • Avoid jackrabbit starts and heavy acceleration.
  • Use cruise control on the highway to keep a constant speed and save fuel.
  • Minimize the use of air conditioning.
  • Make sure your tires are properly maintained and inflated to the correct level.

The Missouri DOR has submitted requests for a refund of last year’s 2.5-cent-a-gallon tax hike through an online portal. The opportunity could allow people to recover money for gas purchases after October 1, 2021, the date Missouri first increased its gas tax.

According to that Missouri DOR“A claim must be submitted by the customer who purchased the fuel and records of each purchase must be retained by the customer and available for department inspection for three years.”
