Gasoline prices have fallen around 10 cents per gallon across Kansas in the last week.
The price today at most stations in Wichita is 3.49 for unleaded. A week ago the price was 3.66.
On the Kansas Turnpike, gasoline is priced as low as 3.37 a gallon.
The national average is $3.74 a gallon.
Gasoline prices typically decline in the fall as refiners switch to cheaper fuel blends and drivers take a break from road trips. This year a series of refinery and pipeline problems sent gasoline supplies plummeting and prices soaring.
The problems have begun to clear up, though, and prices are responding. Tom Kloza, Chief Oil Analyst at the Oil Price Information Service, predicts drops of 5 cents to 15 cents per week for the next three weeks.
