OKLAHOMA – Gas prices are inching up.

AAA reports the National average for the price of a regular gallon of gas increased a tenth of a cent Sunday.

That’s the third consecutive increase.

The average now sits at $3.26. But, that’s still a penny less than the average a week ago.

“Despite the recent uptick, gas prices fortunately remain noticeably less expensive than in recent years,” said Avery Ash, AAA spokesman.
