Oklahoma Paying the Lowest Prices at the Pump

Oklahoma drivers are paying the lowest gasoline prices in the country according to AAA-Oklahoma. The statewide average is $1.576 a gallon. Missouri is the next lowest at $1.60.

“Crude oil’s in a free fall amid plentiful supplies, increased exports from Iran, and concerns that problems in the Chinese economy will reduce fuel demand,” said AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai. “While this is not good news for the oil industry or the state of Oklahoma, these low gas prices are making driving more affordable, incentivizing motorists to hit the highway for a good old-fashioned American road trip, weather permitting.”

The Oklahoma City metro is paying an average of $1.562 a gallon, nearly 12 cents lower than last week and 19 cents lower than last month. A year ago, the Oklahoma City average was $1.798.

For Tulsa motorists, the average cost of a gallon of gas is $1.435. That is more than 16 cents than last week and nearly a quarter lower than a month ago. At this time in 2015, Tulsa drivers were fueling up for $1.707 a gallon.

The statewide average is at its lowest point since January 2009.

The national average price is $1.87 per gallon.
