A new survey by AAA ranks Kansas in the top five states with the cheapest gas prices.

If you’ve been past a gas station lately, you’ve probably have seen it: prices for regular unleaded gasoline going down a few cents during the past week.

AAA says Kansas now has the fifth-lowest gas prices in the nation, with a statewide average of $2.02 per gallon. That’s 19 cents less than the average price drivers are paying for gas across the country.

The prices are even better in the Wichita area, where a gallon of gas is under $2.

AAA's weekly survey shows prices have dropped for six consecutive days. Overall, gas prices have remained steady since early September, and we’re paying less than we did a year ago.

Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and South Carolina are the states with the least expensive gas prices.
