TOPEKA (KSNT) – Kansas motorists got a break at the pump in June, but compared to a year ago they’re still paying record prices.
According to AAA, the average price in Kansas has dropped for 11 consecutive days to an average price of $3.51 per gallon, down four-cents a gallon from last week.
However, the price is three-cents more than one month ago, and 14-cents more than a year ago.
The auto club also says it’s still the highest price for this calendar date since 2008.
The price is also the highest for a 4th of July holiday week-end since 2008 at $3.52 per gallon.
If you’re looking for a glimmer of a silver lining, prices in Hawaii, Alaska, California and Washington state are all above $4.00 per gallon, with Hawaii leading the nation at $4.33.
