Gas Prices Drop Slightly In Missouri

Refuel the car

(Washington D.C.) You may have noticed Missouri gas prices dropped “just a little bit” over the weekend, but overall remain near record highs.

Although it’s still expensive, Julie Percival, an economist from the U-S Bureau of Labor Statistics, says it’s important to note that the fuel hikes are not just because Russia’s Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, citing rising inflation before the war.

She also says there were serious declines in gasoline prices two years ago, due to the pandemic, making the current high prices even more of a shock.

To fill-up a Ford F-150 pickup truck with a 23-gallon fuel tank would be about 89 dollars here in Missouri but it would cost about 132 dollars in California.
