Oklahoma average gasoline prices rise during past week

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The average price for gasoline in Oklahoma is up by 6 cents per gallon during the past week, but is 7 cents lower than a month ago and 68 cents less than a year ago.

AAA Oklahoma says the statewide average for a gallon of regular gas is $1.46 per gallon — tied with Missouri for the lowest price in the nation.

Prices in selected cities range from $1.38 in Muskogee to $1.54 in Ponca City. Motorists in the Tulsa metro are paying $1.39 per gallon while the price in the Oklahoma City metro is $1.46.

AAA spokesman Chuck Mai says prices are likely to rise as refineries undergo spring maintenance.
