ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Congrats Missourians, you're home to the cheapest gas prices in the United States!

According to a new report by AAA, the average gas price in the Show Me state right now is $1.84, which is the cheapest of any state. The next closest are Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Rounding out the top 10 are Louisiana, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and Kansas.

That price is two cents less compared to this day last week and is 47 cents less per gallon compared to this day last year.

Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in Missouri, drivers in Cape Girardeau and St. Louis are paying the most on average at $1.87 while drivers in Springfield are paying the least at $1.72 per gallon.

Missouri drivers have been paying below $2 a gallon for regular unleaded on average for 221 days, which is the longest streak since the statewide average hit $2 a gallon for the first time in 2005, according to AAA.

As far as the states with most expensive gas, California comes in second to last with an average of $3.19 per gallon. But that's still not as pricey as Hawaii, where a gallon of gas will set you back $3.27. Aloha!
