Kansans continues to see comparatively low gas prices. Shawn Steward is with Triple-A Kansas says on Monday Kansas has the 5th cheapest average gas price in the U.S.

“We’re down another 7 cents this week for an average of $2.09,” said Steward. "The metro areas; Wichita, Lawrence, and Kansas City, Kan. are in the top 50 cheapest metro areas in the country."

Steward says parts of Kansas are below $2.00 a gallon, and gas has gone down 40 cents a gallon in the last month.

“Supply and demand are the main factors,” this time of year, there’s fewer people driving between the holiday seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas. There’s less people on the roads and there’s just right now, a really plentiful supply.”

Steward says Missouri has the cheapest statewide average in the country at an even $2.00 a gallon.  Monday prices in Wichita went up 10 cents a gallon to $1.99.
