OKLAHOMA – Thinking about filling up your tank? Gas prices may still make you want to cringe a little.

Oklahoma’s average retail price today for regular gasoline is $3.42 per gallon, the highest it’s been since Sept. 18, 2013, according to AAA. However, AAA reports the average pump price statewide during all of March was $3.39, the lowest March average since 2010.

The national average gas price today – $3.56 per gallon – is the highest since Sept. 11, 2013.

It is three cents more than one week ago and 10 cents more than one month ago, but still seven cents less than on this same date last year.

Despite recent increases, the March nationwide average of $3.51 per gallon was also the least expensive for March since 2010.

Prices may move a little higher in the coming weeks; however the end is likely in sight for many drivers across the country.
