NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Remember $4 gasoline? Remember $3 gasoline? And now, most of the nation can be asked, remember $2 gasoline?

The average price of gasoline is below $2 a gallon in 46 states, according to a survey compiled for motorist group AAA and reported on its Web site. It is lowest in Missouri, at $1.541 a gallon, followed by Kansas at $1.652.

In only 4 states and the District of Columbia does the price remain above $2 a gallon. Two of those states, Alaska and Hawaii, are well above $2 - Alaska the highest at $2.778 and Hawaii next at $2.716.

Also above $2 a gallon: New York, at $2.208; Washington, D.C., at $2.066; and Vermont, at $2.009.

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline fell 0.8 cent Saturday to $1.827 a gallon, according to a survey compiled for motorist group AAA. The price has fallen for 73 consecutive days, and is the lowest it has been in about four years.

The average price has fallen nearly 56% from the record-high $4.114 set on July 17. It is down 72 cents a gallon in the past month, and more than $1.26 a gallon from a year ago.

Information in the survey is compiled by Oil Price Information Service and is taken from credit card transactions at more than 85,000 filling stations nationwide. To top of page
