AAA Oklahoma says the state's average price for a gallon of gasoline has dropped to $1.98 and is the second lowest price in the nation.

Spokesman Chuck Mai says Missouri had the lowest average price for regular gas of any state on Tuesday at $1.92 a gallon. Oklahoma's price is second after falling below $2 on Saturday for the first time since May 7, 2009. The Oklahoma average has now fallen for 62 consecutive days.

The national average was $2.27 Tuesday and has fallen 96 straight days for a total decline of $1.08. Prices have plummeted $1.40 — nearly 40 percent — since the beginning of June.

AAA estimates drivers are paying more than $500 million less for gasoline each day compared to the highs of last spring and summer.
