Drivers in all states and the District of Columbia continue to pay more than $3 per gallon at the pump; but only one state, Hawaii, still has an average price at or above $4 a gallon, down from two states last week. Hawaii has the most expensive gas in the country for the fourth week in a row.
For the second week in a row, both Oregon and Washington remain out of the 10 most expensive states, but California and Idaho remain. Hawaii is most expensive at $4.19, followed by New York at $3.99, Alaska at $3.99, Connecticut at $3.86 and California at $3.85 (down 11 cents and down from fourth most expensive last week).
Idaho is eighth down from sixth at $3.70 (down seven cents). Oregon is 15th down from 11th last week at $3.60 (down 11 cents). Washington is 16th down from 13th most expensive at $3.58 (down 9 cents). For the third week in a row, Missouri has the cheapest gas in the nation at $3.10 a gallon (down a penny).
