"The downward movement in national gasoline prices has continued for yet another week, thanks to a fall in commodity prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Oil prices continue to shed value, leading the way to lower gasoline prices. Five states- all in the nation's midsection- are now seeing their average prices under $3/gallon: Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Kansas, and motorists in those states certainly have a "there's no place like home" advantage," DeHaan said.
