Oklahoma Gasoline Hits $1.92 a Gallon….Still Among Lowest in the U.S.

gasolinepumpGasoline prices have hit an average $1.92 a gallon in Oklahoma this week, according to the latest Fuel Gauge Report from AAA Oklahoma. That’s about a penny less than one week ago but also 58 cents more than the 2016 low of $1.34 reached on Feb. 13.

Nationally, the average is $2.14 a gallon which is the lowest average for the calendar date since 2009.

“AAA is predicting drivers will pay some of the lowest prices for the summer months in more than a decade, barring unforeseen challenges in supply and refinery production,” said Chuck Mai, a spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “The focus now is on whether refiners can keep pace with the expected increase in demand.”

He said demand is still above where it was a year ago, causing some refineries to ramp up production.

Idabel has the cheapest gasoline in the state with an average of $1.81 a gallon, 9 cents cheaper than last week. The most expensive gasoline is in Stillwater where the average is $2.02 a gallon, a dime less than a week ago.

Oklahoma City’s average is $1.91, two cents higher over the past week. Tulsa is at $1.92, also two cents higher. Other averages include $1.90 in Guymon; $1.98 in Bartlesville; $1.96 in Ponca City; $1.90 in Altus; $1.85 in Lawton; and $1.89 a gallon in Muskogee.

California has the most expensive gasoline in the nation with an average price of $2.77 a gallon. Hawaii is second highest at $2.58. Texas has the lowest average at $1.90 while Mississippi’s average is $1.91.
