Travel and Leisure ranks Kansas City, Missouri at number nine in its list of America’s most underrated cities. The roasted beans from Oddly Correct, the great American barbecue from a gas station, its rich history and culture, all make it the next capital of cool.
Kansas has been a happening city ever since the early 1800s. The buzz in the town was one of the reasons why its counterpart on the other side of the river named itself the same. It tried to cash in on the city’s bustling tourist and industrial vibe, which it successfully did for quite some time.
Kansas City, KS may have confused tourists and businesses for some time, but its namesake in Missouri is still home to most of the downtown attractions. There is more to this. While Kansas state ranks 13th worst in terms of its drivers and overall driving culture, Missouri ranks as the 21st best in the same category. Kansas City, MO definitely has a significant share in this ranking. But what makes it such a great to drive?
Cheaper Gas Prices
According to a comparative analysis by the Tax Foundation published in early 2017, the state of Missouri had lower gas prices than most other states. This was primarily because the state of Missouri had the fourth-lowest gas tax in the country.
At 17.30 cents, the tax rate in Missouri was lower than most of its neighbors including, Kansas (24.03 cents) and Illinois (34.01 cents). Only Oklahoma fared better in neighbors and that too with a small margin. This means that it is cheaper to drive in Kansas City, MO than most other cities in the United States, and who doesn’t love that?
The weather in Kansas, MO remains nice throughout its four seasons. While the weather keeps changing from snowy winters to its humid summers, the mercury hardly touches the extremes.
