OKC gas price average sinks below $3
For the first time since Christmas day, 2013, the average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline across Oklahoma City has fallen below three dollars per gallon, according to AAA. Today’s average stands at $2.986, down 1.5 cents from $3.001 yesterday.
AAA says the price has fallen steadily since reaching a 2014 high of $3.54 on June 26.
Tulsa’s citywide price average dove below the three dollar mark on Oct. 7 and now is at $2.915 per gallon, with many stations in the $2.80 to $2.84 price range. Other major cities in Oklahoma boasting sub-three-dollar gas price averages include Enid, Bartlesville, Durant, Okmulgee, Stigler, Wagoner, Norman, Choctaw, Shawnee and Edmond.
“Today, a handful of stations in Oklahoma City are selling regular for as low as $2.64 per gallon,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “But then again, quite a few have set their price above $3.30. Most of the cheaper gas is E-10.”
The Oklahoma average today is $3.026. Five states have a lower statewide average than Oklahoma: Missouri at $2.934; South Carolina, $3.000; Mississippi, $3.009; Tennessee, $3.013; and Minnesota, $3.023. Among the Lower 48, California has the most expensive gasoline today – $3.62
