Five days before the start of the Labor Day weekend, the national average price for regular gasoline continues to march lower, reaching today’s price of $3.43 per gallon, according to AAA.
Motorists across the country are paying two cents less per gallon than one week ago, a dime less than one month ago, and 11 cents less than on this same date last year.
Today’s price represents the second lowest on records for this calendar day since 2010 when the national average was $2.70.
Contrary to the national trend, Oklahoma drivers continue to see relatively stable pump prices.
Today’s average for self-serve regular gasoline ($3.28) is in the same price range it’s been for the past month, $3.26 to $3.32.
Two months ago, however, the state average stood at $3.53 and three months ago, it was $3.42.
