OKLAHOMA CITY – Gasoline prices in Oklahoma are moving higher at a greater pace than in many other parts of the country, a new AAA report shows.
In Oklahoma, the average price of gas has soared 30 cents in the last 16 days.
According to AAA, the state average for self-serve regular is $1.64 per gallon.
Although pump prices are increasing, a spokesman for AAA Oklahoma says we won’t see extremely high gas prices anytime soon.
“Despite these pump price increases, healthy gasoline supplies and lower crude oil prices should keep gas prices from rising as high as we’ve seen in recent years,” Chuck Mai said.
The national average price of gasoline has increased for six consecutive days for the first time since early November, AAA reports.
