WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Wichita drivers are feeling a sense of relief this weekend after the price of a gallon of unleaded gas fell below $4 at some Wichita area gas stations. 

According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of gas in Sedgwick County hit $3.934 Sunday. It’s a sight more than welcome to driver Barney Stephens. 

“I drive a big van I work here out of, and it's…the last time I filled it up was $129,” Stephens said. 

Stephens is a paint contractor and has to drive to various locations across Sedgwick County every day. He said he always checks gas prices when he drives by different stations.

“We can't expect too much with the war going on over in Russia and Ukraine, you know, that's hurting us a lot,” he said.

Another driver, Malakai, said he’s resorted to alternative forms of transportation. He’s now predominantly using his motorcycle to get from place to place. 

“I drive a 4x4 pickup truck, so that cost me about 90, 95 bucks to fill that thing up versus driving this thing is 15 bucks,” he said. 

In June, Kansas gas prices hit over $4. According to AAA, the average price of gas in Kansas was still $4.086 on Sunday. 

“It’s really killing our pockets,” Malakai said. “But yeah, as it's going down, it should get a whole lot better.” 

At both the QuikTrip and Dillons near 13th and West Street, a gallon of unleaded gas was priced at $3.89 Sunday. Both Stephens and Malakai said it’s exciting to see prices going down, but they hope the trend continues. 

“It could go down another dollar, '' Stephens said. “It would be a lot better for me.” 

“Under the $2 range or a little bit above the $2 range,” Malakai said.
