Whether spending the holidays close to home or traveling far, Kansas travelers tell me the low price at the pump is a nice gift .
“You don’t expect it, you expect it to be as high as they can possibly push it up there,” Micki Davis, Wichita Resident
“People can put a little bit more in on their Christmas presents, said Janis Watkins, Valley Center resident.
According to Gasbuddy.com the average price of regular unleaded in Wichita is $1.92.
“Every little bit makes a little bit go a whole lot further,” said Davis.
” I remember when it used to be 29 cent a gallon which it will never be again. but this is very pleasant to have it down this low right now,” said Watkins.
If you are taking a road trip for the holidays, Kansas Highway Patrol has a reminder. Make sure your vehicle is in good working condition.
“You don’t want to be driving to a christmas party you have with your family and get a flat tire because you’re tires are already flat before you leave,” Trooper Taylor Platt, Kansas Highway Patrol.
All to insure everyone gets to their destination safely.
