It's a sad milestone for many drivers. As of Tuesday, gas prices nationwide have averaged $3.00 a gallon or above for 1,000 consecutive days.

The AAA keeps track of prices around the country. It reports the national average has been at $3.00 or above since December 2010. Kansas crossed the three-dollar line a bit later, in January 20-11; its 1,000-day milestone is scheduled for October 7.

The Kansas state average has been at $3.50 or higher for 192 days in 2013, which is more than half the year. Currently in Wichita, the best prices are in the $3.47 range.

Gas prices tend to go down during fall, with vacation season over. But the recent tension involving Syria has affected oil trading around the world. Crude oil in New York was still in the range of $107 per barrel Tuesday morning.

Prices in wichita have been sliding downward a bit lately.
Many stations are below three-50 a gallon this morning.
But the days of prices in the twos may be through.
