KEOKUK, Ia. (WGEM) -- Prices at the pump are on the way down and they could fall even more.
In Quincy, gas prices sit at $3.15 a gallon. But in other parts of the Tri-States prices are already well below $3. In Keokuk, gas is $2.83 a gallon. In Hannibal, it's $2.92.
The national average is near $3 a gallon, the lowest it's been in three years. And with varying prices locally, Tri-State drivers say they fill up wherever they can save the most money.
One driver said, "I try to pick the cheapest. Illinois is still a little higher than Iowa but I like to keep my money in Illinois but these Iowa gas prices are what draw you over."
"I just wish they'd go a little bit lower. Maybe it'll get below two dollars a gallon. That would be nice," said another Southeast Iowa driver.
"I wish they were only $.50 a gallon like they were when I was young."
Analysts say prices haven't reached the bottom of the barrel. They expect prices to fall another $.10 to $.20 more by the end of the year. One of the main reasons for the drop in prices is an increase in U.S. oil production.
