(KMOV) -- A recent drop in oil prices might mean drivers will be paying less at the pump.
Oil prices fell to $70/barrel on Monday, the lowest price of the year. That's down 20 percent from the 18 month high set just two weeks ago. This drop might be a sign of cheaper gas prices in the near future.
As of Monday night, gas is selling for around $2.87 per gallon, which is consistent with prices across the country. Normally, St. Louis gas prices are about a dime less than the national average.
