Oklahoma and Missouri remained the states with the lowest gas prices! I live in Missouri. Alaska, the state with the highest prices, drivers pay an average of $4.63 a gallon. Is your budget finding any relief at this point?

The highest gas got to here was $4.00 gallon I live in Nebraska. Now it is $3.69 a gallon for super unleaded in the town I live in we can drive about 30 miles and only have to pay $3.55 a gallon don't know why there is such a difference in price.

It is a little bit of a relief. I have noticed some difference in our household funds during the high gas prices. I don't know if it is just gas or how everything is affected by the price of gas. I hope the situation reverses soon.

As of yesterday the gas prices in my area is $3.77 a gallon for the cheapest and $4.00 for the premium. It has went down because the cheapest was over $4 not to long ago. I am hoping it will go way down since school break is over for most atleast in my area.

So far it is still hurting use. We have only $200 a month fopr gas and the last several months have been really bad. It is nice that it is coming down and I am laughing at all those commodity investors that are now losing money because the price is dropping. They deserve it for hurting us so bad.

My budget isn't finding any relief yet. So I am still in major conserving mode. Yesterday I filled the tank it was $3.66 a gallon which is down from the high of $4.09 a gallon in early July. With the price of a barrel of oil going down this week let's hope and pray that we continue to see it go down down down!!

Yes I am happy gas prices have finally started to come down. I live in Missouri & yesterday I paid $3.68 per gallon to fill up my car, much better than $4.00 - hopefully the trend will continue.

Hi, Mommy. Gas prices are still dropping here. Over the last few weeks, it has gradually dropped from $4.15 to the current price of $3.78. Last week, it had dropped to around $3.93. So, it has dropped another 15 cents. Yesterday morning, I splurged and got $10 of gasoline instead of just 2 gallons!

It was $3.43 here a few days ago when I filled up my tank. It was almost $4 a few weeks ago. It is real drop in price, but I would still love to see it go under $3 a gallon again at least.

It has still yet to drop below $4 in California, and it's still incredibly high in certain parts of the state, such as $4.40 on parts of the coast. It is some relief to the budget, but it is still not that much savings per gallon; if trends continue though, it will make a very notable impact.
