Gas prices continue falling in Oklahoma—$2.17 a gallon in Stillwater


Gasoline prices are as low as $2.17 in parts of Oklahoma this week while in other areas of the state, prices are on 14 cents away from $4 a gallon. If you plan on traveling by car for the approaching Thanksgiving holiday, that’s a good thing.

AAA and GasBuddy report prices continued to fall in the past week.

AAA reported Oklahoma’s average for a gallon of unleaded regulator gasoline is $2.91, down 9 cents from a week ago and 41 cents less than one month ago.

But GasBuddy reported gasoline could be bought for $2.17 to $2.21 a gallon in Stillwater—the lowest prices in the state. In the Oklahoma City area, where AAA reported the average is $2.84 a gallon, GasBuddy reported prices as low as $2.43 a gallon were found in Midwest City.

AAA also recorded Payne County, where Stillwater is located, had the state’s lowest county average at $2.74.

GasBuddy reported the lowest prices in Tulsa were $2.59 per gallon while AAA recorded the city’s average at $2.78.

Lawton’s AAA average this week was $2.74 a gallon, a dime cheaper than one week earlier. GasBuddy found the lowest gasoline price in Lawton to be $2.59 per gallon.

Oklahoma’s highest county prices are in Coal County where the average is $2.86 per gallon. Most of southeast Oklahoma has some of the highest county averages in the state. Northwest Oklahoma also has high averages including $3.42 in Ellis County.

Some analysts suggest that gasoline prices might fall even more as crude oil prices continue their decline.

Oklahoma’s average of $2.91 is reported by AAA to be among the ten lowest state averages in the country. It compares to $2.80 in Texas, $2.94 in Arkansas, $2.98 in Missouri, $3.09 in Kansas, $3.30 in Colorado and $3.20 in New Mexico.
