ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

If you have been driving in both Missouri and Illinois in recent days, you might have noticed something unusual.

The price of gas has been virtually the same in each state.

According to AAA, it's because Illinois has already switched from the summer gas to the winter formula.

Normally prices in Illinois are 15 to 20 cents higher compared to Missouri.

The prices are normally higher in Illinois because there are about 15 cents in extra taxes on each gallon of gas sold in the state.
