Oklahoma gas prices lowest in US for Thanksgiving holiday

AP - November 22, 2016 9:51 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma motorists will enjoy the lowest gasoline prices in the nation over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
AAA Oklahoma said Monday that Oklahoma’s pump price average of $1.85 per gallon is not only the lowest of the 50 states but is also a full nickel below the three states that are tied for second place: Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, where Monday’s average is $1.90 a gallon.
AAA says about 43.5 million Americans will travel on the nation’s highways over Thanksgiving – including about 555,600 Oklahomans – and that drivers will pay the second-lowest Thanksgiving gas prices since 2008, when the national average was $1.85.
Monday’s national average price of $2.14 per gallon represents a savings of 3 cents per gallon from one week ago and 9 cents for the month.
