Oklahoma gas prices on the rise


OKLAHOMA – Oklahoma gasoline prices are on the rise, AAA reports, up nearly two cents over the past week.

“The state average today stands at $3.10 for regular,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “It hasn’t been this high since the week before Halloween last year.”

AAA expects prices to move higher in the coming weeks and months due to the same seasonal factors that typically lead to rising prices this time of the year: scheduled refinery maintenance and the EPA-mandated switchover to summer-blend gasoline production in advance of the May 1 deadline.

During January, Oklahoma’s average price statewide for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline rose 2.6 cents while the national average ended the month down about four cents from where it began. Many motorists curtailed driving due to cold weather and icy roads. Today’s national average is $3.27 per gallon, 17 cents higher than Oklahoma’s average price.
