(MISSOURINET) – You may have noticed Missouri gas prices dropped “just a little” over the weekend.

To fill-up a Ford F150 pickup truck with just a 23-gallon fuel capacity would be about 89-dollars here in Missouri but it would cost more than 40-dollars ($132) MORE in California.

Although it’s still expensive, Julie Percival, an economist from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, says it’s important to note that the fuel hikes are not just because Russia’s Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.
