Average price of gas starting to increase in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – AAA Oklahoma says the average price for gasoline is reversing its downward trend in Oklahoma and is now rising statewide.

The agency said Tuesday that the statewide average for a gallon of self-serve regular gas is $1.41, the lowest average price in the nation but 7 cents more than on Saturday.

Spokesman Chuck Mai said prices normally rise at this time of year because of increasing demand and refineries re-tooling for summer operations. But Mai said it’s not clear whether the increase is the start of a trend.

Prices in selected cities range from $1.31 per gallon in Bartlesville to $1.47 in Stillwater. The average in the Oklahoma City metro is $1.42, while the price in Tulsa and Lawton each averages $1.34.

The national average price is $1.70 per gallon.
